You will find your 1944 INDEX divided in the following manner: 

A.U1V111M lo 1 JAiY 1 lUiM — including all those individuals and groups of individuals 
who have to do with the internal and external functioning of the University ; 

vjLAOuJI/u — containing pictures of students grouped according to their class standing, 
and of the Navy V-12 men who of necessity make up a single unit; 

ALi J 1 V 1 1 IJJjO — attempting to give a cross-section of the out-of-class activities which 
go to make the social life of the I. S. N. U. student; 

A. 1 J ULU/ 1 IvjO — representing in picture and legend the campus sports and the men 
and women who participate. 

The 1944 INDEX is an attempt to depict realistically our University in war-time. 

This year representative pictures of new scenes created by the war supplement familiar 
campus views. The Navy V-12 unit has taken its place in the traditional treatment of classes. 
A summary of the happenings of this historic year frames the picture of the new and the old.

The present war is not unique in the life of our University although it does represent a new experience to a 
vast majority of faculty and students now on the campus. In fact, Old Main, from its imposing location at the 
north end of our spacious campus, has looked upon students leaving to serve in four major wars. 

But the school year 1943-1944 will be recorded in the history of this University, as elsewhere, not merely as 
a war year or even a third school year of the participation of our nation in the greatest war of all times, but rather 
as the year when the very intensity of the struggle began to separate the dark clouds of war and to give us a glimpse 
of that longed-for silver lining of victory and ultimate peace. In this year we shall recall that the stars on our 
service flag, both blue and gold, represented numbers over three times as great as finally recorded at the close of 
World War I. 

The coming to the campus of the Navy V-12 Unit, the organized and effective activities of the various boards 
of the War Service Council, the increased availability of the facilities and services of the University, the successful 
Bond and Red Cross campaigns, — these and many unrecorded efforts will forever remain as a fascinating page of his- 
tory to be cherished by those who participated and highly respected by those who read the record in the years to come.

Student Statesmen Take the Stand in 


From the time the Freshman issue of the Vidette 
is made up to the day when Seniors wend their way 
to Sherwood, members of Student Council are on the 
job serving on boards, committees, and crews, voicing 
student opinion, and functioning as a student govern- 
ing body. 

The first large order of the year for Council, and 
the last for President Jean Mitchell, was to aid in 
staging a successful Homecoming by selecting a crew 
of energetic workmen to serve on the Homecoming 
committee made up of faculty and students. Diligent 
work and careful planning were behind every activity 
of the weekend, but the special projects^f the Council 
were the Queen election, pep session and bonfire, and 
the Alumni Registration booth. 

Managing the pep session and snake dance was a 
familiar task to this active group of men and women, 
but it required all the ingenuity that they could muster 
to find enough material in this paper-rationed time 
to produce a light bright enough to forecast disaster 
to the Wesley an eleven. Sworn to secrecy as to the 
location of the potential bonfire, members quietly 
went about the business of finding torches to be used 

on the fateful night when we would light- our own fire. 
No easy matter this, either, what with burlap bags 
being worth more to the war effort, but resourceful 
students arrived on the spot with flaming flares to lead 
the wildly cheering mass to the carefully guarded 
brush pile. And we lighted it ourselves! 

Requiring little less brain work was the float for the 
Queens, since the parade theme prohibited the use 
of valuable gasoline. Again the Council came through, 
this time with a prancing team of horses hitched to 
a gaily decorated wagon. 

It was at this time that vice-president Emilie 
Dutczak took over the presidency for Jean, who went 
East to change her name to Crabtree, and Phyllis Oko 
was elected to serve as vice-president. 

'With one victory over Wesleyan tucked under their 
shoulder pads, the football team gave promise of giv- 
ing a repeat performance on the green and white field. 
Basing their faith on the team, council members sued 
for a full day of celebration following the second vic- 
tory, and received the approval of the administration. 

With the utmost faith in the football team, Council 
members decided on a policy to be followed when we 


won the second Wesleyan game. Leafing back through 
the musty pages of tradition to the long-ago day when 
Normal trounced the Wesleyan eleven, Council mem- 
bers unearthed the Victory Bell which had been bid- 
ing its time in the recesses of the INDEX office until 
the day should come when Redbirds would make it 
ring again. Dusty and faded from disuse, the old bell 
was rejuvenated with a coat of brilliant red paint, 
adorned with a white "N," and held the place of 
honor at the Victory Day celebration on Monday 
after the historic second defeat of the Titans. Back- 
ing the all-day release from classes and helping make 
the day one to remember were Council members super- 
vising the honoring of the team at the mass meeting, 
supplying financial aid for the free movie, and chang- 
ing records for "hep" students jiving at the afternoon 
dance which climaxed the celebration. 

After the Christmas holidays, the student body 
saw the fruits of the donations they had given through 
clubs and organizations when the University Social 
Center was opened for "dancing after four," card 
playing, and lounging. The new U.S.C. was the Stu- 
dent Lounge operating under new rules drawn up 
by Council members and designed to be of more value 
as a recreation center until the day of our post-war 
Student Union. 

Second mental upset for council members came 
when Sponsor Francis Hibler resigned his post in 
March. His duties have been accepted by Mr. R. U. 

Seniors holding Council membership were Phyllis 
Oko, Norma Cope, Dorothy Marsh, Mary Ruth 
Lemons, and Emilie Dutczak. Those representing 
the junior class were Jane Caviezel, Marilyn Coles, 
Doris Tillman, and June Million. The Sophomores 
elected Edwin Shepherdson, Beverly Smith, Marian 
Rouse and Rita Hart. The freshmen chose Vivian 
King, Norma Struck, Martha Alverson, and Pauline 
Novaria as council members. Members from the 
Navy V-12 unit were Wayne Botkin, and Eugene 
Speck. Ex-officio members were Vidette Editor Ruth 
Ann Orr and Index Co-Editor Barbara JClder. 

Council members work silently, efficiently, and al- 
ways. They take roll in assembly, serve on the num- 
erous boards throughout the year, and take up the 
duties on special committees when the need arises. 
They stir up school spirit when it seems to lag, spon- 
sor school elections, and act as the clearing house 
for problems between administration and students. 

Here is proof that a democratic organization can 
get things done.

Seldom Seen, but Vital, Are the 


As vital to a smoothly functioning university pro- 
gram as sergeants and second lieutenants to an army 
are the many boards on campus. Students and faculty 
members work cooperatively to achieve their mutual 
end, often rationing ideas or equipment if need be. 
The President and Dean of the University serve as 

ex-officio members of all the boards. 


If an organization asked 1 cent per person for 
maintenance and received i/o cent per person, the 
decision was reached by the Apportionment Board. 

Theatre Board: Johnson, Miss Allen, Miller, Weldon, Harper, 

Special Assignments Board: Oko, Elder, Caviezel, Mr. Holmes, 
Miss Conkev, Dutezak. 


Since this board distributed the activity 
fee to various organizations and the 
activity fee is all-school in its scope, the 
benefiting organizations and activities 
must also be all-school. Mr. H. W. Adams 
was faculty chairman and Mary Ellen 
Price, student chairman. 


Deciding whether the Redbirds play 
Macomb or DeKalb on .January 26 or 
whether John Q.'s scholastic record per- 
mits him to play on the football, basket- 
ball, or baseball team is the type of de- 
cisions reached by Mr. L. W. Miller, faculty 
chairman, and Robert Whammond, stu- 
dent chairman, of the Athletic Board. The 
board members also supervised the gen- 
eral policies of the intramural and inter- 
collegiate - athletic programs of the Uni- 


Concerned with all matters pertaining 
to the health of students and standing- 
ready at all times to cooperate with the 
school physician and other agencies in 
maintaining good health standards was the 
Student Health Board. Frances Conkey, 
faculty member, and Phyllis Oko, student, 
were chairmen of this board. 


The Special Assignments Board func- 
tioned on problems that did not come 
under the heading of the other committees 
and boards of the Student Personnel Com- 
mittee. It initiated the work on the Uni- 
versity Social Center and planned the 
housing of V-12 students remaining on 
campus during Christmas vacation. This 
board was directed by Mr. L. A. Holmes, 
faculty chairman, and Jane Caviezel, stu- 
dent chairman. 


Working steadily to iron out all the dif- 
ficulties that have arisen from war-time 
changes on campus, such as the substitu- 
tion of the Canteen for the traditional 

Student Health Board: Lemons, Miss Conkey, Rouse, Oko, Mr. O'Connor, 
Shepherdson, Mrs. Warren.

Miss Vinson, Miss Brenneman.

Miss Frey, Oko, Mr. Linkins, Elder. 


Friday night dance, the decoration of the gym, and 
the elimination of the tug-of-war between freshmen 
and sophomore men was the problem of the Home- 
coming Board. Faculty chairman was Mr. R. U. 
Gooding; student chairman, Charles Procasky. 

Important functions of the Social Life and Organi- 
zations Board were: to consider requests for extra 
meetings on organization nights, to consider the estab- 
lishment of new campus organizations, to encourage 
self-evaluation of clubs, to study the general social 
life of the campus with a view to its continued bet- 
terment, and to compile the calendar of events for 
all campus activities. Serving as faculty and student 
chairmen respectively were Dean R. H. Linkins and 
Jane Caviezel. 


Bringing to campus famous lecturers, concert enter- 
tainers, and other distinguished personalities was the 
function of the Entertainment, Concert, and Lecture 
Board. In addition, the assembly programs through- 
out the year and the motion pictures shown in Capen 
on week-ends were planned by this board, chairmen 
of which were Dean R. H. Linkins and Julia Cline. 


The Forensic Board, which had as its chairmen, 
Miss Ruth Yates, faculty, and Marjorie Johnson, stu- 
dent, planned trips relating to forensic activities and 
supervised speech contests and the annual I.S.N.U. 
Invitational Debate Tournament.

The Wheel Has Come Full Circle for the 



For the last time — registration, physical exams, 
notices at Four Corners, cokes at the Coop, guest 
speakers, exams, term papers, and a last letter from 
I.S.N.U. to Mom — these pleasantries and tasks but 
scantily represent our four years at I.S.N.U. 

An outstanding "last-time" event of the year was 
Homecoming — a special triumph for seniors because 
of the climaxing football victory over Wesleyan. But 
we remember with nostalgia that then was our last 
opportunity to welcome alums, to decorate the gym, 
and to work on the play. 

Among experiences new to us this final year was 
practice teaching — worry over planning lessons, cor- 
recting papers, and filling out grade cards. We con- 
tended with such professional "incidentals" as cre- 
dentials, application pictures, P.T.A. meetings, con- 
ferences with critics, and interviews with principals 
and board members. 

War has added color to the Senior class in the form 
of letters from classmates in far-flung India, Persia, 
Africa, Honolulu, and Singapore, visits from alumni 
in uniform, and blue-jacket seniors on campus. 

Working with us in both our junior and senior 
years, sponsor C. M. Hammerlund has added zest 
to suggestion in all our attempts. 

Directing this year's program was president Ruth 
Koltveit. Supporting her and offering suggestions was 
the advisory board, composed of twenty energetic 
class workers. Out of this group grew vital ideas. 
Working with the Student Council, they made posters 
and VV tags, and planned the "N" Bell pep session 
for the Victory Game of the year. 

Seniors also planned the Thanksgiving dance, for 
which vice-president John Zadrozny furnished man 
power to provide a "corny" atmosphere befitting the 
air of the turkey dance. The suggestion for writing 
Christmas letters from seniors at I.S.N.U. to seniors 
in service was a brain-child of that same group. 
Among other activities recorded by secretary-treasurer 
Bette Salisbury were the April party and Senior Skip 

Looking back we shall remember all these things 
representing our four years at I.S.N.U. This year 
we have wrapped about us the robe of seniority, striv- 
ing to perceive the full significance of the role we 
may play in a world fighting for peace. As graduates 
of a teachers college, we are assuming our share in 
the guidance of a generation working toward a peace- 
ful world.

Introducing the 


Dottie dreams up a super scheme for the 
Prom — Junior Class Officers Dottie McKee, 
Marge Yepsen, ,-Virg Bachman. 



Back Roiv: Bachman, Mr. Holmes, Reeves, 

Bremer, Sherrard, Mclvee. Durham. Bergstrom, 


Front Row: Dunklin, Beatty, Yepsen, Bundy, 

Gorman, Ring, Payne, Gillis. 

The Student Teachers of Tommorrow— 


Clothed in the dignity of upperclassmen, weighted 
down with education courses, at home in the classroom 
and out — especially out — authorities on the idiosyn- 
cracies of professors, committee meetings eight days in 
the week — all this describes those individuals on 
campus who together compose the Junior Class. 

The junior looks back and finds it hard to believe 
that three years have been passed in the environs of 
Normal, so quickly have they flown. And yet these 
years have brought many changes. He remembers 
those first months of his freshman year, climaxed by 
that fateful Sunday in December, 1941. 

He remembers returning the next September to find 
that many of his classmates of the year before had 
not returned to claim the name sophomore. And as 
the sophomore year passed on to the junior, more and 
more of his classmates were called to the service of 
their country. But the class of '45 — those on Guadal- 
canal and those in High School Problems class — car- 
ried on. 

To do their bit for national defense, the juniors 
sponsored a Stamp Dance in December, the price of 
admission being the purchase of war stamps. The 
proceeds of the dance went into two war bonds made 

out to the Junior Class. 

This year's Junior Class, following in, the footsteps 
of preceding classes, decided to give the best Junior- 
Senior Prom in the history of the school. Early in the 
year the officers and the advisory board began plans 
and put committees to work on the headline affair. 

Presiding officer at meetings of the advisory board 
and head coke dispenser at the class parties was Virgil 
Bachman, chief executive of the class of '45. Second 
in command was vice-president Marge Yepsen, while 
keeper of the record and guardian of the treasury was 
Dorothy McKee. Law and order was preserved by 
faculty sponsor, Mr. Leslie A. Holmes. 

The officers were assisted in their duties by the sage 
counsel of the advisory board composed of experts 
Alvera Beatty, Betty Bergstrom, Betty Bremer, Helen 
Bundy, Erva Calhoon, Marilyn Coles, Pat Cullen, 
Frances Durham, Mary Dunklin, Anna Gorman, Inez 
Payne, Marjorie Reeves, Catherine Ring, Maye Gillis, 
and Dorothy Sherrard. 

Looking forward, not without some trepidation, to 
Phil of Ed and student teaching, the members of the 
Junior Class turn the last page, and close the book on 
this, their third vear at I.S.N.U.

Introducing the 


"Gregory" spins a yarn on the quarter-deck 
of the ship — Sophomore Class Officers A.S. 
Bill Suhring, A.S. George Hrehovcsik, and 
A.S. Kenneth Steelman. 



Standing: Johnson, Sibley, Byrne, Miller, Eavey, 
Andrews, Pinder. 

Second Rou>: Hawkins, Whitehead, Harper, Cop- 
Ian, Foster, Smith. 

Front Row: Steelman, Benjamin, Hrehovcsik. 

Ahoy, Mates! They're a Ship-Shape Crew- 


The Sophomores have gone sailing along this year 
with A.S. George Hrehovcsik as the "skipper" and 
A.S. Kenneth Steelman and A.S. Bill Surhing as the 
executive officers. Mr. Howard Ivens was again 
chosen as class sponsor. 

Better class parties and another first place in the 
U. Club Stunt Show were the aims of the class for 
the year. Remember the Frosh stunt that won second 
place in the 1943 Stunt Show in which the main at- 
tractions were Skerlock Bones, the Lone Stranger 
and Viper Von Whoosit? The theme was strictly 

This year's class assembly was written and di- 
rected by Marietta Harper, who was assisted by 
Onalee Coplan. Everybody seemed to guess that the 
object of this musical skit was to advertise the 

The Sophomore Cotillion, the biggest formal at 
I.S.N.U. this year (ask any sophomore!), was a great 
success. The dark circles under the eyes of Grace 
Kinsey and A.S. Stuart Riley, were due to the long- 

hours of planning and work on the Cotillion decora- 
tion. Donald Pinder had charge of feeding the crew. 
Other chairmen were Dorothy Fisherkeller, pro- 
grams, and Chester Andrews, advertising. 

The decorations for the "George Washington Ball" 
consisted of a replica of the home of George Wash- 
ington at Mount Vernon. Silhouetted figures stood 
in the windows and a large American flag waved 
above all. The lighting added to the colonial at- 
mosphere. Beverly Smith and A.S. George Maddrey 
who were elected King and Queen of the Cotillion, led 
the dance. 

The Sophomore Advisory Board members were A.S. 
Robert F. Johnson, A.S. Harry Hardesty, A.S. Joe 
Eavey, A.S. Kenneth Sibley, A.S. David Byrne, A.S. 
Richard Miller, Donald Pinder, Beverly Smith, 
Vivian Pratto, Onalee Coplan, Jane Whitehead, Jane 
Price, Marietta Harper, Eleanora Hawkins, Ruthelma 
Benjamin, Grace Kinsey, and Mr. Ivens. For two 
years, this class has been a leader in the activities 
on campus and there is a promise of "More to Come."

Introducing the 

nuuki CLASS 

They led the class of '47 through "green-letter" 
days — Freshman Class Officers Ray Bauer, 
/Charlotte Goff, and Roberta Sanderson. 



Back Row: Rozum, Benway, Seiling. 

Fourth Row: Mr. Browne, Novaria, Olson, Alver- 
son, Empson, Sanderson, Goff. 

Third Row: King, Ellingsworth, Bean, Naseef, 

Second Row: Davis, Alexander, Barnett, Jones. 

Front Row: Bauer. 

Look Who's Bu::in\ Cousin! It's the 


"Here's to Normal, dear old Normal! Hail I.S.N.U." 
gaily rang the school song, welcoming September's 
freshman class. And what a class! Its very choice of 
a university reflects its intelligence. (Are we proud!) 
"Did you have to contend with adjustments?" ques- 
tions an upperclassman. "Certainly," returns the con- 
fident freshman, "College is one big adjustment prob- 
lem. The faculty says so." "But, gee, how I love 
to adjust to this place. Everyone is so sorta friendly. 
Our campus sisters have made us feel right at home." 
"But home was never like this," they say, glancing 
toward Fell Hall. 

But, ah! Freshman Week! Why couldn't it last? 
Dances, teas, receptions, new friends, movies, campus 
tours — all this and registration too! Quote one aspir- 
ing freshman, "After I've made an 'A' in school ad- 
ministration and a few other trifles, I'll definitely take 
steps to eliminate all entrance exams and registra- 
tions." "Amen!" (Ah, men!) reverently punned a 
roommate, glancing at the Navy review. 

Concrete evidence that these Freshies are really on 

the beam is shown in their choice of officers — Ray 
Bauer, president, a lad from Ingleside; Charlotte Goff, 
vice-president, a gay little U. High product; and 
Roberta. Sanderson, secretary-treasurer, a petite 
Streator belle, who selected members of that go-get- 
ting group to serve as advisory council. And who 
gave these bright lads and lassies the tip-off for their 
selection of sponsors R. G. Browne and A. H. Larsen? 
Maybe it was that old intuition shining through again. 

The freshman class contributed their share in hold- 
ing up Normal's Thanksgiving-time morale with the 
Pumpkin Ball. Corn shocks, pumpkins, and hard-time 
costumes lent the appropriate atmosphere. ' With 
games, mixers, singin' and jitterbug contests, I.S.N.U. 's 
guys, gals, and gobs, alias the Dawsons and the 
Whipples, really lifted the old roof off Cook Hall. 

Taking advantage of I.S.N.U. 's sentimentality, these 
business-minded novices successfully staged a George 
Washington Ball, where Cupid and hearts put Wally 
Muelder's band in the groove. But definitely! 

Sure 'nuff, these Freshies are reallv "clickin'!"

Men Who'll Go Down to the Sea- 


The Navy blue of the United States Navy joined 
company with the red and white of I.S.N.U. on July 1, 
1943. Approximately three hundred men arrived for 
the Navy V-12 program — some from the fleet and sea 
duty, others from various colleges and universities, 
and a few who had never tasted either college or Navy 
life. They are here to build up a reservoir of Naval 
officer material. 

The program was set up to utilize the facilities of 
universities and the academic and technical training 
of young men both from civilian and Navy life. This 
opportunity enables them to earn academic credit 
toward their professional careers during the Naval 

Consisting of three sixteen-week terms each year, 
the sailors' course of study includes physics, advanced 
mathematics, Naval organization, Naval history and 
strategy, military drill and a strenuous program of 
physical education. 

Lt. Meldrim F. Burrill is Commanding Officer of 
the unit. He came to the campus from the II. S. Naval 
Reserve Midshipmen's School at Columbia University, 
New York, and was formerly from California. The 
other commissioned officers are Lt. (j.g.) Eugene W. 
Bowman, executive officer, Lt. (j.g.) Edwin A. Busse, 
medical officer, and Lt. (j.g.) Merrill W. Rusher, med- 
ical officer.

From Alma Mater to Alums Goes the 


What do former students of I.S.N.U. look forward 
to receiving four times each year? Of course, it's the 
Alumni Quarterly. Students of the university per- 
haps do not realize how this organ of the school re- 
flects what we are doing on campus now, as well as 
informing alumni what is happening in the field of 

In addition to being sent to regular subscribers, it 
is also sent to high schools in this territory. The 
Quarterly finds its way into some 380 camps and 
naval stations where alumni are stationed. Many 
of our service men and women have expressed their 
delight in finding something from Old Normal in their 
camp libraries or exchanges. 

Some features of the Alumni Quarterly appear 
every February, May, August, and November. Of 
special interest to everyone is the list of marriages. 
There is also news exchange column which contains 
items about get-togethers, changes of jobs, and other 
recent events. "Around the Clock at Normal" keeps 

former students up to date on what is happening on 
campus this year. Extension courses, debates, as- 
semblies, resignations, new appointments, and the 
calendar are but a few of the items mentioned. "In 
Memoriam," consisting of death notices, is also in- 
cluded in each quarterly issue. Guest writers have 
written about what they are doing in their own line 
of work or war duty. 

Since the beginning of the war, much space has 
been devoted to letters from service men and women 
of I.S.N.U. Pictures of alumni missing in action, or 
killed, have been included in each issue. 

The work of Mrs. Gertrude M. Hall, regular editor 
of the Alumni Quarterly, now on leave of absence, is 
being carried on by an editorial committee. Miss 
Florence E. Teager, chairman of the group, was as- 
sisted by Miss Lucy Lucille Tasher, and Mr. Williard 
E. Fowler, instructor of printing, and Mrs. C. H. 
Adolph of Normal, who acted as business manager.

Pioneers in the Field of Yearbook Production 


From the first ray of dawn to the night watchman's 
last round, some member of the Index staff was us- 
ually to be found working feverishly to meet some 
deadline. But it was on Mondav afternoon from 4 to 

6 that the small office on the second floor of North 
Hall was a beehive of activity. 

Continuing the experiment that pioneering I.S.N.U. 
had begun last year — that of making the production

of the Index a class project — enthusiastic students en- 
rolled in the School and College Annual course and 
began learning to speak the language of printers, en- 
gravers, and photographers. This year the course be- 
came dignified with a number, as English 270, and 
carried the further advantages of giving credits in 
business education, art education, and professional 
education in addition to English, according to the 
individual's choice. 

Further experimentation was brought into the 
course when, instead of the traditional editor-in-chief, 
business manager, and assistant editor, Co-Editors 
Frances Tellaro, Marge Lowe, and Barbara Elder 
were selected to direct the staff work. 

General adviser this year was Miss Esther Vinson 
of the English department, with assistants Miss Mar- 
garet Peters serving as the business education author- 
ity, and Mrs. Mary Parker giving art supervision. Also 
this year the Index staff moved to a new office in the 
journalism unit of North Hall — "middle cloor right as 
you come up the stairs." Pride and joy of the picture 
pasters and typists was the new fluorescent light sus- 
pended above the long work table. 

Art co-editors Dorothy McKee and Esther Otte 
worked diligently with their other two staff artists, 
May Robertson and Oraleen Schroeder, to get division 
pages, pocket sketches, and humor sketches to the 
engraver; and literary editor Marge Irwin kept the 
copy coming in from writers Patty Clayton, Nadine 

Wood, Jane Kansleben, Ken Miller and Mary Don- 

Photographs were kept in order, copy typed and 
filing was done by business staff members Berniece 
Francis and Marie Croft. 

Ramon Hanson, ubiquitous photographer, snapped 
informal shots as occasion demanded, and worked tor 
no credit. Since the class is open only to upperclass- 
men, sophomores wishing to enroll do so as auditors; 
two such persons were members of this year's staff. 

When proof came back from the printer, every 
person had an opportunity to learn proofreader's sym- 
bols by practical application, and it was only after 
the last page had gone back to the printer that every- 
one felt his job was nearing completion. 

As a part of the year's work, concrete and practical 
suggestions to future Index staff members were drawn 
up and placed in the permanent office file. 

Such a plan seemed to work the first year, and this 
year has seen some improvements, some faults that 
could be remedied. The organization has, however, 
given all students who were interested a chance to 
work on the annual, and to feel at home in the labora- 
tory course. Last year the book won a first-class honor 
rating from the National Scholastic Press Association. 
We make no prophecies about this year's publication, 
but we do maintain that honors and prizes are inci- 
dentals — the book that best records the spirit as well 
as the events of the school year, and is produced within 
the budget, is the best book.

All the University's a stage and the students and 
faculty merely players. 

And who observes the social and scholastic scenes 
of any campus most closely? most critically? most 

earnestly? Who pays minutest attention to the 
entrances and exits of students and faculty in campus 
life? Answer — the staff of a university newspaper.

able news, the Jane Ardens and Brenda Starrs of the 
Vidette staff, those see-all, know-all, tell-all indi- 
viduals, slaved away making last minute deadlines 
to the tune of pounding typewriters in the new head- 
quarters in N205. 

The editor's chair was occupied by Ruth Ann Orr 
who inspired the zealous staff in an atmosphere of 
friendliness and cooperation. Right-hand lady to the 
editor was managing editor Imogene "queen-of-all 
trades" Henderson. Make-up editor Margaret Anne 
Stipp juggled the King's English just enough to create 
succinct and accurate headlines and sub-heads. Ruth 
Koltveit, as business manager, was concerned mainly 
with keeping the debit accounts in the ledger syn- 
chronized closely with the apportionment and adver- 
tising funds. 

Nose-for-news editor Dorothy Marsh, a veteran at 
the business; sports editor Nettie Davenport assisted 
by sports writers Kenneth Miller, A. S. Marvin 
"Mike" Rubin, Marjorie Voigt, and A. S. Louis 
Terhune; and Mona Eisenhower of "Verse Vogues" 
all worked enthusiastically. Let us not forget "Red's 
Review" by A. S. William "Red" Zima, sports writer 
previous to his leaving campus in the Navy's October 
graduating class. 

Remember Scuttlebutt, that gossip column flavored 
with naval jargon, by A. S. Louis Terhune, better 
known to fans as "Dewey"; the subtle, scintillating 

humor of Potpourri by Cerise (Cherrie Jane Healey) ; 
and the comments on the foibles of human nature — 
or of student nature — in Fran-kly Speaking by 
Frances Tellaro? 

Blue pencil in hands and eyes alert for any stray 
error, Helene Harvey and Eloise Holzhauer checked 
galley proofs before sending them to press. Many 
originally designed ads resulted from the work of the 
advertising staff led by advertising manager Kathryn 
Martens. Securing diligent regard for the traditional 
birdie, Lloyd Weber snapped the many and varied 
pictures for the several issues. And who wouldn't 
say that the timely cartoons of John Zadrozny weren't 
piercingly effective? 

But with all these editors and managers and ad- 
vertising salesmen there must be some who do the 
simple but very necessary chore of gathering and 
writing the news, with an occasional feature or inter- 
view for "human interest." These are the reporters,, 
recruited from the class in Journalism 165, where 
news writing is studied and practiced, and efforts 
criticized and re-written — and re-written. The course 
is taught by Miss Esther Vinson of the English staff. 

To see that the Vidette is a true reflection of the 
spirit and life of the university it represents and of 
the students who "strut and fret their hour upon this 
stage" is the task of the ubiquitous but anonymous

They'd Rather Be Wright in 

W 1M G H T \I A 

Above a door on third floor Old Main is (not the 
bust of Pallas), but an inscription which reads 
"Wrightonian Society." It would take more than a 
second World War to dampen the spirit of this so- 
ciety. Although membership was smaller this year, 
loyal Wrights met every Monday evening at 7:45 
in Wright Hall and upheld traditional activities — 
"full speed ahead" to quote Admiral Farragut. 

Those persons whose names appeared on the 
Wrightonian nominal list and who professed an inter- 
est in becoming an active member "tried out" before 
the society in one of the fields of oration, dramatic 
reading, piano, vocal, extempore speaking, or debate. 

Participating in the annual Phil-Wright Contest 
which broke the Wright's winning streak this year, 
were: Ramon Hanson singing "Deep River" and 
"Bells of the Sea," Merle Singley interpreting Grieg's 
Nocturne, Bette Salisbury orating "A House Divided," 

Rosemary Browne speaking extemporaneously on 
"The Post-War World," and Jane Price reading the 
dramatic "Dear Brutus." Debaters A. S. William 
Hodge and A. S. Horace Marvel propounded the con 
side of the debate question. 

The Wright Pen Company, a brain concoction of 
three members, held a quiz program interrogating the 
members on questions of general knowledge. Their 
slogan was "It Never Needs a Phil." 

In January Miss Blanche McAvoy, assistant pro- 
fessor of biological science, discussed "Books on 
Antarctica." She showed pictures of the region from 
the books which she reviewed. 

Leading the Wrights were president, Bette Salis- 
bury; vice-president, Martha Lewis (first semester), 
Frances Rolley (second semester); secretary, Helen 
Norder, and treasurer, Jane Price. Mr. Charles A. 
Harper sponsored the society.

Eighty -Seven Years of ''Going On" for 


This was Philadelphia's year! In February came 
the eighty-third annual Phil- Wright contest. The 
Phils won in four of the six competitive fields, bring- 
ing them a total of six victories more than the Wrigh- 
tonians have recorded. 

Jeanne Hooker won the vocal contest, Janice El- 
lingsworth the extempore speaking, Ruthelma Ben- 
jamin the oration, and Lois Terpening and Blanche 
McCoy the debate. In the piano solo and dramatic 
reading events Marilyn Theis and Barbara Elder re- 
spectively made the Wrights work hard to win those 
two sections. 

Early in the first semester nominate tried out for 
membership, and those who were accepted underwent 
initiation by representing Mother Goose characters. 

Inter-society relations flourished this year. Wrigh- 
tonia Literary Society invited Philadelphia members 
to their clubroom for a quiz program sponsored by 

"Wright Wright Fountain Pens, Inc., whose pens re- 
quire no Phils." (But everyone needs Phils, the Phils 
claim.) Philadelphians soon repaid the compliment by 
luring the Wrights to their steeped-in-tradition hall. 
Phils and Wrights even had their annual banquets 

Shortly before Christmas vacation Phils met in the 
Carnegie room of Milner Library, and listened to 
carols of Merrie England and those of other European 

An assembly program was Philadelphia's major 
project in April. This with other Phil activities Philled 
the Phil calendar for the year. 

Barbara Elder presided over activities of Phila- 
delphia, with Doroothy Fisherkeller as vice-president 
and program chairman, Jane Whitehead as secretary, 
and Marilyn Theis as treasurer. Again Mr. Leslie 
Isted was sponsor of the society.

It's a Mans World in 


University Club members refused to hide their 
heads and twiddle their proverbial thumbs this year 
in spite of their depleted numbers. Dances, the 
Christmas Service, the Stunt Show, and monthly meet- 
ings were part of the group's activities. 

Big-game hunting and fishing experiences in 
Canada provided a program for U Club at the No- 
vember meeting with Mr. Richard Dunn, resident 
member of the Teachers College Board, and in De- 
cember University Club men met in Milner Library 
to see movies of the Fell Hall fire, Normal-Wesleyan 
football games, and Homecoming. 

Early in the first semester Wally Muelder of the 
Navy V-12 unit organized a hot — but sweet — V-12 
dance band. University Club became the foster par- 
ent to maintain it for the year. The dance band 
staged its official debut at the U Club winter formal 
on December 11 where Leonard MacKain, featured 
vocalist, displayed his own technique of "swoon croon- 

"The Christmas Story" was read by Dr. Allan D. 
Albert of Paris, Illinois, at the annual University 
Club Christmas service. The University Choir pre- 
sented traditional Christmas music with Miss Gladys 
Tipton of the music department presiding at the 

In the spring University Club presented its annual 
Stunt Show. This special show each year gives the 
various campus organizations selected for the Stunt 
Show a chance to show off the talent their members 
possess. U Club men plan every year for a' better 
Stunt Show than the year before offered, and U Club 
always comes through. 

At the beginning of the second semester Charles 
Procasky announced his resignation as president, and 
Phil Atkinson, vice-president, took up the responsibili- 
ties of the presidential office. James Prange filled the 
office of secretary and Lyman Smith that of treasurer. 
Dean R. H. Linkins served his umpteenth year as 
sponsor of the organization.

But Women Have Their Say in 


What a success! These are the words describing 
any of the dances, teas, and programs sponsored by 
Women's League, an organization composed of all 
women on campus. 

Innovations on the W.L. calendar this year were 
the Spook show held on Hallowe'en, the Thanksgiv- 
ing Matinee dance, and the Christmas tea. "Nicky" 
dances alleviated boredom and "Winter Fantasy" 
proved to be the formal of the year. 

"Yuletide Meditation" brought spiritual beauty and 
restfulness to the students and faculty during that last 
trying week before vacation. The Christmas tree 
laden with gifts for needy children was arranged by 
Women's League as has been the custom for several 

What the well-dressed college co-ed wears was dis- 
played at the style show given at the first program 
meeting. Other mass meetings included talks by Mr. 
Edgar Drake on "Wartime Marriages," and by Mrs. 
A. R. Williams on "Domestic Tranquilities." 

"Campus Cues," telling the freshmen what to do 

and what not to do was edited jointly by Women's 
League and University Club. Many of the activities 
of freshman week were planned by this organization. 
The Honor Council, consisting of girls chosen for 
their ability, were responsible for the counseling of 
freshman girls. 

Officers of the club were Lois Jahnke, president; 
Mary Ellen Price, vice-president; Billie Herrick, sec- 
retary; Phyllis Oko, treasurer; Mary Carolyn 
Goodier, social chairman; Alicejane Froland, assistant 
social chairman. Editors of the Co-ed were Margaret 
Breen and Elsie Fulton. 

Other chairmen on the Executive Board were Bette 
Belle Cooke, counseling; and her assistant, Bette 
Belle Irvin; Marilyn Whited and Dorothy Catlin, pub- 
licity; Julie Cline, records, Mary Selk, finance; 
Frances Marie Cyrier, citizenship; Margaret Reeves, 
house presidents board; Sylvia Swanson, W.R.A. 
president; Kathryn Martens, Y.W.C.A. president. 
Dean Anna L. Keaton is the sponsor. 


Tomorrow' s Citizens Prepare Today in 


"Have you voted yet?" 

Thus the women students of the University were 
greeted on a certain day in March as they strolled 
through the Main Office in order to avoid the traffic 
congestion at Four Corners. It was the second 
Wednesday in March — and Women's Day at I.S.N.U. 
(As if every day isn't!) 

And in the Main Office members of the College 
League of Women Voters were conducting the annual 
election of officers for Women's League. This League 
of Women Voters is composed of a group of alert 
young women who devote their semi-monthly meet- 
ings to discussions concerning the intelligent and dis- 
criminating use of the franchise. 

These young women believe in action — their motto 
is "an active and intelligent voting citizenship" — so 
instead of merely spinning theories about con- 
temporary American life, they go out to see for them- 
selves what this business of being a citizen in a 
democracy is all about. 

Their study of taxation (maybe Congress and 

F.D.R. should sit in on these discussions) took 'them 
to the Office of the Assessor and the Collector at the 
Court House. They also visited the Americanization 
School at the Y.W.C.A., 'and to prove that they were 
not a bit worried about their No. 18 ration-stamp 
shoes wearing out, they made another trip to the 
Court House to study county organization. 

The program for the year included a study of 
foreign policies, as well as a discussion of the timely 
topic, "War Work and Children," in connection with 
which members paid a visit to the Bloomington Day 

Members planned the annual Citizenship Recogni- 
tion Day assembly program, designed to emphasize 
the importance of the franchise in a democratic form 
of government. 

During the past year the officers of this group of 
informed voters were Frances Marie Cyrier, presi- 
dent; Elsie Carlson, vice-president; Marjory Davis, 
secretary-treasurer; and Miss Feme Melrose, sponsor.

The "White Room'' is Open Again! 

I W. C. L 

Almost three-quarters of a century of existence — 
that is the proud record of the Y.W.C.A. of I.S.N.U. 
Organized on this campus in 1842 under the leadership 
of Mrs. Lida Brown McMurry, preceptress of the 
school at the time, as the first college Y.W.C.A. in the 
world, the Y.W. has since performed much in the way 
of service to the school and the community. The out- 
standing achievement of this, its seventy-second year, 
was the realization of a long-sought goal — the restora- 
tion of the "White Room," the scene of its founding, 
on the ground floor of Old Main, as the meeting place 
for the organization and reading room for students. 

A Saturday in September found members setting 
forth on the annual Walkout Breakfast — a two-mile 
hike at the hour when "the morn, in russet mantle 
clad, walks o'er the dew of yon high eastward hill." 

The gaiety of Homecoming was enhanced by the 
colorful mums sold by Y.W. and the welcome of 
alumni by the impressive Sunrise Service held at the 
Baptist Church. Founder's Day, November 12, was 

celebrated with the Recognition Service at the Pres- 
byterian Church in which new members were initiated 
into the organization by a candlelight ceremony. 

Members of Y.W. did more than dream about a 
white Christmas — they gave their annual White Gift 
party with the gifts going to the Booker T. Washing- 
ton Orphanage in Bloomington. Miss Ruth Stroud 
read a Christmas story at the party which was held 
in the Student Lounge. 

In order that they might arrive at a better under- 
standing of the peoples of Russia and South America, 
members discussed the historical, geographical, liter- 
ary, and religious aspects of these countries at their 
weekly meetings during March and April. May 
brought the impressive Installation ceremony, when 
President Kay Martens, Vice-President Ann Prescott, 
Secretary Virginia Brenkman, and Treasurer Emo- 
gene Mott handed over their duties to those chosen 
to succeed them. Miss Neva McDavitt served as 
faculty sponsor.

"And Thirdly, We Maintain' 


"Even thus last night, and two nights more, I lay 
and could not win thee, sleep!" — so wrote Wordsworth 
and so read Inez Payne to win the poetry reading con- 
test, held each year in memory of Richard Edwards, 
second president of I.S.N.U. In addition to the sonnet 
"To Sleep," Inez read "American Names" by Stephen 
Vincent Benet and Robert Frost's "The Runaway." 
With his oration "The Civilian War Effort," A. S. 
Edwin Carson won the public speaking section of 
the Edward's Medal Contest. 

The pro and con of an international police force 
was debated and discussed at the Twelfth Annual In- 
vitational Debate Tournament sponsored by Forensic 
Board and the speech department. Although Carroll 
College of Wisconsin repeated its '43 victory, Pat 
Weldon won first in the discussion group. She was also 
awarded a certificate of excellence at the Fourth An- 
nual Debate and Discussion Tournament at the Uni- 
versitv of Nebraska.

They' re' Tops at 


"Good afternoon. The Tower Studios of Illinois 
State Normal University present 'War Time'." So 
begins a typical program from the top floor of 
Cook Hall. 

Those jagged radio waves reach out from the 
campus studio of station WJBC each day at 5:00 
and 7:45 p.m. in various broadcasts, and at 10:30 
a.m. on Tuesdays in "Homemaker's Chats." Pro- 
grams range from Tschaikowsky to "La Deklara- 
tion des Droits . . . ," and from current events to 
quiz-kid programs. 

On Friday afternoons Central Illinoisans heard 
about past, present, and future events of the week 
taking place on the Normal campus. This came in 
the broadcast known as "Campus News." 

Miss Helen E. Marshall acted as chairman of 
the Radio Committee with the aid of Mr. Orville 
Young as vice-chairman, Miss Mary Arnold, Miss 
Nina Gray, Miss Ruth Yates, Miss Lucile Crosby, 
and Mr. Leslie Isted. These people saw that pro- 
grams were scheduled, that people were notified 
of an appearance before the "mike," and that a 
wide variety of programs was provided. 

Three rooms and a sound effects closet make up 
the studios. The equipment includes two micro- 
phones, a piano, numerous records, and announcers. 
Even-thing in the studios snaps to attention when 
the little red light bulb grows bright. When "We 
return you to our downtown studios" is heard, all 
sigh with relief until the next broadcast. 

Alternating between announcing and operating 
controls during the first semester were Alice Strick- 
land, Ramon Hanson and Duane Booi. During 
the second semester announcers and technicians 
were Inez Payne, Ramon Hanson, and Ken Miller. 

"We return you to our downtown studios" — Hanson at 
the mike — Mr. Hudelson and Payne collaborate — Miller 
at the controls — Miller and Pa3'ne announcing. 


Histrionics — We've Got 'Em — 


While the clock in Old Main strikes out the fading 
hours of night, budding neophytes of the stage are 
found mixing paint, handling stage bracers, operating 
the dimmers, and smearing on grease paint. 

The curtains of Capen parted to show the staging 
of As You Like It for the commencement season 
of 1943. Under the direction of ingenious Miss Mable 
Clare Allen, assisted by Patricia Weldon, an all- 
women cast had prepared to transform Sherwood 
Forest into the Forest of Arden, but alas! the weather 
was not as you'd like it. (Ouch!) 

Marion DePew played the role of Orlando, "the ' 
excellent young man" who won the heart of banished 
Rosalind, portrayed by Phyllis Burnett Thomas. 
Cherrie Jane Healey, clad in motley, and Lois 
Wheeler, assuming the wiles of a country wench, were 
eommediennes as Touchstone and Audrey. 

Homecoming theater-goers were silent witnesses of 
life in a Pennsylvania Dutch household dramatized 
in Patterson Greene's Papa Is All. Blue-jacketeer A.S. 
Robert Lindquist stormed behind the footlights as 
the club-footed Papa who wielded a blacksnake whip 
tyrannically. A.S. Howard Schersten gave a fine in- 
terpretation of the silent but meditative Jake who 
outwitted the dictatorial father. Neoma Reier and 
Imogen e Henderson shared the spotlight as meek, 
little Mama Aukamp. Tension was relieved by the 
off-key singing of "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" 
by gossipy Mrs. Yoder, characterized by Blanche 
Baker and Edith Morris. Rounding out the cast of 
characters were Dorothy Schafer and Norma Struck 
as Emma Aukamp and Phil Atkinson as Brendle, the 

Fairyland came to the University Theater when 

"What for law? Ain't it the law of God I should drive loafers and thieves from my own house out? 
Make fast, now — " Papa Is All; Schafer, Schersten. Morris, Henderson, Lindquist, Atkinson. 


Jessie Braham White's version of the beloved "Snow 
White and the Seven Dwarfs" was enacted on stage 
by the Children's Theater, a community project. Once 
again Miss Allen, with student assistant directors 
Patricia Goodell and Inez Paine, reaped more praises 
for this interpretation which follows more closely the 
fairy tale than does the movie which was Walt Dis- 
ney's adaptation for screen use. 

Designers of the six quaint scenes were Marjorie 
Johnson, chairman, Ruthelma Benjamin, Eleanor 
Horn, Blanche McCoy, "and Roberta Hoover. Work- 
ing on property, make-up, lights, business, and pub- 
licity crews were Lorraine Sandeen, Alvera Beatty, 
Jane Benton, Irene Cherhavy, Pauline Novaria, June 
Million, Marietta Harper, Francis Coan, Nancy Fear- 
heily, Barbara Browne, Ann Gooding, Joan Mercer, 
Pat Weldon, Leija Viitanen, Winnie DuBois, Meryl 
Singley, Laverda Sparks, Wanda McClelland, Mar- 
jorie Horn, Donnabelle Opperman, Ann Waddell, Lois 
Terpening, Neoma Reier, and Maxine Miller. 

On January 21, the first nighters of this locality ap- 
plauded cuttings from three plays directed by junior 
speech majors Lorraine Sandeen, Maxine Miller, and 
Inez Payne. Undertaken as projects for the Advanced 
Direction class, these dramatic productions were pre- 
ceded by study of the various periods of drama. 

No love lost between mother and daughter-in-law; The Silver 
Cord; Viitanen. Harper, Wittnrer, Clarke — "My own big 
boys;" Clarke, Viitanen, Lindsay — Script calls for the dim- 
mers — Greasepaint Artists— "The house lights are out, and 
here's the play." 


"So! A foreigner you take; worse as a gypsy, even, from the 
ditches out ..." Papa Is All; Schersten, Henderson, Lind- 
quist, Morris. 

Audrey, the country wench, woos Touch- 
stone . . . As You Like It ; Weldon, Healy, 

Selections for student directing were made from plays 
representative of the seventeenth century, and the 
problems encountered afforded a chance for practical 
application of the study and research. 

A portion of Henrik Ibsen's The Master Builder 
was directed by Lorraine Sandeen. This play repre- 
sented the period of realism. The cast included June 
Million, Mary Donnell, and A.S. Carroll Cole- 
Inez Payne's presentation was a cutting from El- 
mer Rice's expressionistic drama, The Adding Ma- 
chine. Lois Terpening, Bob Lindsay, Alvera Beatty, 
and Howard Schersten made up the cast of characters. 
Bette Salisbury, Janice Ellingsworth, Helen Norder, 
Marietta Edwards, Marjorie Johnson, and Lois Ter- 
pening enacted two scenes from the third act of 
Moliere's The Learned Ladies, chosen by Maxine 
Miller for her directing project. 

Jesters and the University Theater collaborated to 
bring to stage lovers Sidney Howard's The Silver 
Cord, a psychological drama. The student director 
chosen to assist Miss Allen during this performance 
was Cherrie Jane Healey. 

The role of Mrs. Phelps was dramatically enacted 
by flaxen-haired Leija Viitanen, who succeeded in 
winning the hearty dislike of the audience for refus- 
ing to sever the cord which bound her two sons to 
her. David, Robert Lindsay off-stage, escaped his 

mother's clutch pro temp while studying in Europe. 
Returning to his home with his observing and out- 
spoken wife, a research biologist, he suddenly realized 
his mother's selfish intentions and saved his marriage 
by throwing off his mother's baneful influence. 
Christina, David's wife, was characterized by Mar- 
garet Whittmer. A.S. Milton Clarke, played the part 
of Robert, the younger son, who leaned too heavily 
upon maternal love and unflinchingly lost his fiancee, 
Hester, portrayed by Pat Harper. 

Chairman of the stage and scene committee was 
Marjorie Johnson, and her assistants were James 
Prange, Wanda McClelland, Pat Weldon, and Mary 
Donnell. Other crew workers were: properties, chair- 
man Irene Cherhavy, Alvera Beatty, Marietta Harper, 
Mary McCormick, and Geraldine Tracy; lights, chair- 
man June Million, Phyllis Thomas, Lois Froelich, and 
Neoma Reier; costumes, chairman Lois Terpening, 
Edith Morris, Erva Calhoon, and Jane Price; make- 
up, chairman Ruthelma Benjamin, Marjorie Horn, 
Helene Harvey, and Josephine Costanza; house, chair- 
man Eleanor Horn, and Elizabeth Bryan; publicity, 
chairman Lorraine Sandeen, and Lorraine Bailey. 

To these behind-the-scene workers also go orchids 
for their aid in bringing the curtain down on another 
successful finale to the play season. 


Vitality is Vital to Women in 

W. R. 1 

Co-eds did not have to do fifty burpees, sixty sit- 
ups, or hop 60 feet in two seconds fiat to benefit from 
the sport program offered this year by the Women's 
Recreational Association. Any woman on campus 
who takes part in the fun and frolic through participa- 
tion in the various sports activities may become a 
full-fledged member. 

Gaining victory on the home front through a rec- 
reational program needed the leadership found in the 
governing board consisting of Sylvia Swanson, presi- 
dent; Kitty Kiester, vice-president; Mary Dunklin, 
secretary; and Kay Wheeler, treasurer. Miss Irene 
Clayton, as sponsor, helped to chalk up another suc- 
cessful year. 

A balmy fall day was a perfect setting for the 
ever-popular sports day — a day designed to bring- 
together all women on campus. Students participated 
by curricula, and recognition was given to the busi- 
ness education majors for accumulating the highest 

score. Individual honors went to Lois DeLap, Mary 
Bell, and Anita Neal. 

Returning alumnae learned about newest innova- 
tions on I.S.N.U.'s recreational program at the home- 
coming luncheon — ah, calisthenics! Later they • saw 
the practical value of the physical fitness program 
when students piled up the highest hockey score. 

Reindeer, Christmas trees, and a gym full of girls 
were the outstanding features of the Christmas party 
and dance. "Nicky" provided the music, and not a 
single man (sailor, or otherwise) was permitted to 
enter; but all students (even men) had been invited 
to attend play night, held in Cook Hall gym because 
of the Fell Hall fire. 

Doing a little middle-manning, W.R.A. arranged to 
get tickets for bowling and swimming at the Y.W.C.A. 
in Bloomington. And a few extra evenings after school 
were all that was needed for participation in the intra- 
mural program.

J. S. N. U.'s Supermen Belong to 

f f 


The "N" Club is a campus organization for varsity 
lettermen. It began the year 1943-44 as one of the 
smallest organizations of I.S.N.U. with a roll call of 
only five members. 

"N" Club is exclusively for those he-men who gain 
great glory or happy hunting in various fields of ath- 
letics. All men who win an "N" letter, Normal's own 
campaign ribbon, automatically become members. 

From its original five members at the beginning of 
the year "N" Club swelled its ranks with new letter- 
men in football, basketball, wrestling, track and field, 
tennis, baseball, and golf. Some former members re- 
turned to I.S.N.U. at the beginning of the second 
semester and re-entered club activities. 

Not an introvertive campus organization, this let- 
termen's club carries on many different activities for 
the social life of the entire student body. 

At the Homecoming football game against Wes- 
leyan, "N" Club members sold sports fans' favorite 
food — peanuts, popcorn, and cokes. Open house for 
alumni was held at the office of the sponsor Coach 

Howard Hancock, immediately after the Homecoming 

The Good Will dance with Wesleyan is an annual 
affair sponsored by "N" men. Although it is tra- 
ditional that the game was held at one school and 
the dance at the other, this year, Wesleyan generously 
offered the use of Wesleyan's Memorial Gymnasium 
because Navy V-12 men were occupying McCormick 
Gymnasium. The offer was accepted and the Good 
Will dance was held on November 19 with music by 
Jack McKown and his orchestra. 

In February, the group acted as host to the McLean 
County High School Basketball Tournament in Mc- 
Cormick Gymnasium and credit goes to the men who 
did all the worrying and working to make the tourna- 
ment run smoothly. 

When President Clem Seils left at the end of the 
first semester to enter the Service, Jack Escorcia, 
former vice-president, succeeded him to the chair. 
Bruce McDonald wielded a mighty pen over minutes 
and finances.

I. S. N. U.'s Intellectually Elite Belong to 


"Post-War Education" was the appropriate theme 
for the year chosen by the honor society in education, 
Kappa Delta Pi. At various meetings this group of 
educators heard Christine Bessmer, alumna and win- 
ner of the University of Illinois graduate scholarship 
in 1942, tell about work for the master's degree; Dr. 
Carl Gamer, director of religious education at the 
I.S.S.C.S., discuss post-war education; Alice Sakai, 
American of Japanese descent and a freshman in 
Home Economics, speak on Japanese rehabilitation 
centers; and Mr. Edgar Drake, district supervisor of 
the state department of public welfare, talk on 
problems of delinquency. Representatives of the 
Americanization School in Bloomington were the fea- 
ture of one of the spring meetings. Lt. Meldrim Bur- 
rill, the commanding officer of the Navy V-12 unit on 
campus, was speaker on another occasion. 

At the Homecoming banquet this year eleven 
pledges became active members: Eunice Aebischer, 

Mary Ellen Price, Bernice Phillips, Marjorie Enns, 
Frieda Michel, Stanley Trembacki, Jewel Sanner, Lela 
Rainey, Edith Robinson, Frances Tellaro, and Jan- 
nette Pfanz. The following became members at the 
January meeting: Walter Bartz, Margaret Grich'nik, 
Bertha Harper, Beverly Lincoln, Marie Sorensen, 
Betty* Trenary, and Mildred Wunderlich. Since its 
founding on March 4, 1922, the local chapter has 
initiated 649 members. 

Officers during the year were June Clauson, presi- 
dent; Elsie Fulton, vice-president; Eunice Smallwood, 
secretary; Gloria Piazzi, treasurer; and Mr. H. H. 
Schroeder, counselor. 

Final event of the year was the spring banquet at 
which members related how Kappa Delta Pi had 
achieved its purpose of "encouraging high profes- 
sional, intellectual, and personal standards, and recog- 
nizing outstanding contributions in education."

Time: A cold evening in February. 

Place: A home-like room warmed by a cheerful 
blaze in the fireplace. 

Cast: Girls, girls, and more girls — all gathered 
around listening to Miss Florence Teager, associate 
professor of English, discuss Russian literature. The 
young ladies are members of Kappa Delta Epsilon, 
the national education sorority; the hostess, Mrs. 
Stella Henderson, faculty sponsor. 

An inviting scene, but only one of many on the 
program of events for the year. "Education for To- 
morrow" was the appropriate theme for this circle of 
prospective teachers. 

Other dates of interest on the K.D.E. calendar were: 

October 23 — Homecoming Banquet at the Metho- 
dist Church. 

November 18 — Original creations of the imagination 
presented by the pledges to entertain actives at the 
informal initiation. 

December 16 — Impressive formal initiation serv- 
ice at 811 South Fell Avenue. Christmas carols be- 
fore the yule logs. 

January 12 — The Culbertson Plan for world union 
explained by Mr. H. 0. Lathrop, head of the geography 

March 1 — Problems of delinquency discussed from 
the standpoint of adolescent psychology by Mr. C. 
F. Malmberg of the psychology department. 

April 22 — Annual Founders' Day Banquet. 

The officers who served the sorority during the 
year were: Mary Ellen Orr, president; Elsie Fulton, 
vice-president; Jane Bug, corresponding secretary; 
Phyllis Burnett, recording secretary; Eunice Small- 
wood, treasurer; and Imogene Henderson, historian. 
Chairmen of committees were: social, Bette Belle

Truk, Kwajalein, Novgorod, Salerno — names which 
have blazed from the headlines during the year may 
have confused "the man on the street," hitherto un- 
aware of their existence, to say nothing of their lo- 
cation, but they are easily identified lor are they?) 
by the geographers of the Alpha chapter of Gamma 
Theta Upsilon, national geographical fraternity. 

With the outbreak of the present war came an in- 
creased interest in geography and its various branches 
of study. This was emphasized at one of the monthly 
meetings this year by a discussion of "Geography and 
Geographers in the War," during which the term 
"geopolitics" gained a new significance in the minds 
of the members of the important part, it plays in the 
war and will play in the peace to follow. 

Two outstanding speakers addressed the fraternity 
during the year. The first was Mr. H. H. Schroeder, 
who presented vivid scenes of his visits to the Grand 

Canyon country. The second was Miss Eunice Black- 
burn, missionary teacher at Meridian, who lectured on 
Yucatan to an interested audience. 

Jane Shields served as president of the organization 
during the year, with A.S. Richard Van Scoyoc vice- 
president. Future members of G.T.U. will have access 
to accurate records of the 1943-1944 season in the 
minutes taken by Laura Kaario. Credit is due Janet 
Lee Fredrickson for the balancing of the financial 
ledgers. Eleanor Allonby, program chairman, provided 
interesting and timely entertainment. Lois Simpson 
and her committee prepared and mailed several hun- 
dred copies of the Gamma Theta Upsilon News-Letter 
to alumni and service men all over the world. 

The faculty sponsor of the local chapter, Mr. H. 0. 
Lathrop, holds the position of national president of 
the fraternity.

Mathematical Master Minds 


These Euclidean scholars, these conneis of Ein- 
stein, these nimble-minded figure toters, are mem- 
bers of the National honorary mathematics fraternity, 
Kappa Mu Epsilon. Campus math-magicians have 
as their aims the development of an appreciation of 
the beauty of mathematics, scholarship that demands 
a search for the truth, and creation of interest in 
mathematics through fellowship. 

The Homecoming breakfast in October set the stage 
for KME alums and present student members to 
compare notes, and having missed the presence of 
many men who now serve in all branches of the armed 
forces, the group in November sent a two-page letter 
to these fifty-three fellows telling them the news of 
the day in the mathematics department and else- 
where around I.S.N.U. 

Mr. C. N. Mills displayed a hidden talent at the 
Christmas party when he auctioned off the toys which 
were donated to needy children in Normal and Bloom- 
ington. Later in the season LaNora Hood, Jewel San- 

ner, and Irving Brauer conducted a discussion on 
Recreational Mathematics; and when Mr. Leslie Is- 
ted, instructor in the music department, spoke to the 
group, each person came away with new and definite 
ideas about the part that math plays in the life of 
a musician. 

All-Fools' day witnessed the KME Spring Banquet 
held in the Mirror room of the Hotel Rogers. Speaker 
of the evening was Miss Edith Benjamin, member of 
KME and now a teacher of mathematics. Pledges 
attending were Maxine Sponsler, Ruth Gentry, Mary 
Donnell, Alice McCorkle, and Janice Posey. The one 
new member this year was Bertha Harper. 

Wielding the ruler for the year was President Amber 
Grauer, aided by Vice-Presidents Mildred Wunderlich, 
and Stanley Trembacki, first and second semesters re- 
spectively, Treasurer Frances Marie Cyrier and Secre- 
taries Eleanor Rae Lower and Jewel Sanner, first and 
second semesters. Miss Edith Atkin served as spon-

Dorit Flunk History of Civ if You Would Join 


"Who is the Father of History?" "What is a com- 
munity?" "Give the law of diminishing returns." No, 
this isn't a history class — it's merely the informal in- 
itiation of Pi Gamma Mu, the Greek-letter society of 
the students of social science, with pledges frantically 
attempting to recall what they had heard about the 
business cycle in that almost-forgotten economics 
class of last semester, while actives gaze at them from 
a position of Olympian boredom. All the poor pledge 
can recall from the dim past of last semester is the 
never-to-be forgotten fact that the average high school 
in Illinois has eighty-one pupils, and education has 
nothing to do with social science — or has it? 

With these difficult conditions of initiation to be 
met, it is easy to see why only those upperclassmen 
with a "B" average in the social studies can hope to 
receive an invitation to this exclusive society of 

This year Pi Gamma Mu lived up to its motto, 
"Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make 
you free," by choosing for its monthly meetings the 

general theme, "Understanding the Rest of the 
World." This theme was developed by a series of re- 
views of recently published books of a social, eco- 
nomic, and political nature. 

Books reviewed were "One World" by Wendell 
Wilkie, "Letters of an American Farmer" by St. Jean 
de Crevecoeur, "The American" by James Truslow 
Adams, "Mission to Moscow" by Joseph E. Davies, 
and "Year of Decision" by Bernard De Voto. Mem- 
bers of the organization participated in three radio 
programs built around group discussions of these book 

The officers who directed the activities of the or- 
ganization for the past year were Kitty Kiester, presi- 
dent; Eileen Kirchner, vice-president; and Betty 
Trenary, secretary-treasurer. Mrs. Dorothy Brunk 
served as faculty sponsor. The active membership in- 
cluded Margaret Ann Erio, Jack Escorcia, Robert 
Garrett, Frances Grover, Billie Herrick, Ralph Ritten- 
house, Lois Simpson, Stanley Trembacki, June Vick, 
and Nadiene W T enderoth.

Mr. Chairman, Worthy Opponents, Ladies and Gentlemen: 


There is no pro or con about whether or not PKD 
deserves merit; therefore be it resolved that this 
honorary forensic fraternity be herein truly repre- 

The first event of the year was the fall reception 
for freshmen directed by PKD and the Forensic 
Board. These two organizations also merged to spon- 
sor the First School-Wide Discussion Contest. Each 
organization on campus was invited to enter a repre- 
sentative in the discussion which dealt with the post- 
war world. 

Although the number of participants responding 
was small, the contest was carried through three 
rounds, during which each participant spoke on three 
different topics. Their final scores were determined 
by the compilation of a mark indicating quality and 
a number denoting rank. 

Individual cash prizes provided by the Forensic 
Board of $5, $3, and $2 were awarded to the three 
having the highest standing. They were, in the order 
of their excellence, Martha Lewis, Mary Esther 

Weber, and A. S. William Hodge, representing Wrigh- 
tonia. President Marian Gillespie served as man- 
ager for the discussion contest. 

At Homecoming Pi Kappa Delta held a joint ban- 
quet with Pi Gamma Mu. Mr. Forrest Cockrell, 
member of both fraternities, was speaker. 

The Illinois Provincial Tournament, held March 
24-25 at DcKalb, was strictly for members of PKD. 
Secretary-treasurer Patty Weldon and Rosemary 
Browne entered in debate, and Marjorie Munns, 
A.S. Edward Carson, and A.S. Herbert Graff, in 
oratory. The subject of discussion was whether or 
not the United States should help in establishing and 
maintaining a world police force. Mr. F. L. D. Holmes 
and Mr. Fred S. Sorrenson accompanied the group. 

Since Miss Gillespie completed her work in the Uni- 
versity at the close of the first semester, vice-president 
Mae Miller assumed the position in February. 

New initiates admitted at the annual spring ban- 
quet were Kenneth Haney, John Douglas, A.S. Her- 
bert Graff, and A.S. Edwin Carson.

Pi Omega Pi? No, it isn't the latest creation of the 
home economies department. Nor do you have to 
carry a pencil behind your ear and notebook in your 
hand to be a member. You do have to know "What's 
What" in commerce before you are eligible for the 
honorary commerce fraternity, Pi Omega Pi. 

You must also like coffee! For it seems that al- 
though the members uphold their purpose of bringing 
together business education students for further study 
and fellowship to a "T" (any resemblance to a "T" 
account is purely incidental!), they still must have 
their after-snack and coffee. 

Back in '28, a group of fifteen students and five 
faculty members organized the Theta chapter of Pi 
Omega Pi and upheld the motto, "Service, Loyalty and 
Progress." Sixteen years later members are still carry- 
ing on enthusiastically. 

Choosing Mildred Wunderlich as president, Eunice 
Smallwood as vice-president, Gloria Piazzi as secre- 

tary, Beverly Chase as treasurer, and Amber Grauer 
as historian, Pi Omega Pi started off with a double 
header program at the annual Homecoming banquet: 
Miss Alta Day gave information on former members 
now in service, and seven students were formally in- 
itiated into the organization. 

The club's policy of acquainting the future com- 
mercial teachers with a realization of problems they 
will have to face when out in the field affected the 
nature of the meetings. For instance: business edu- 
cation in the high schools after the war was discussed ; 
sponsor Miss Olivia Hansen explained the make-up 
and purposes of the F.B.L.A. (Future Business Lead- 
ers of America), a new organization that high school 
students may join; "Sponsoring High School Publi- 
cations" was presented by Miss Esther Vinson, teacher 
of journalism. Miss Vinson gave helpful hints to com- 
mercial teachers who may find themselves confronted 
with the production of a school newspaper or annual.

"My wrists ached with the delicious ache of creative 
desire," wrote Katherine Butler Hathaway in her 
book, "The Little Locksmith," thus voicing the secret 
literary feelings of the "long-haired" poets of the 
English fraternity, Sigma Tau Delta. (Long-haired 
in the sense that under the war-imposed shortage of 
men the active membership is feminine.) 

When the wrists of these literary neophytes began 
to ache they gripped their pens, invoked the aid of a 
muse, and began to write. The scribbled creations 
were then sent to the editor of "The Rectangle," the 
national magazine of the fraternity, and many of them 
surprised their creators by breaking forth into print 
in one of the quarterly issues of the publication. 

Bleak November came, bringing with it among its 
more cheerful aspects the meeting of the organization 
at the home of Miss Vinson, at which time the book 
"Man of Malice Landing" by Dorothy Roberts was 
discussed. The December meeting was given over to 
the old English custom of caroling, with the members 

setting forth on a cold winter's night to serenade the 
English faculty members. 

In keeping with the theme for the year, "Current 
Literature," Pearl Buck's book "The Promise" was 
reviewed in January, while the February program 
included the reading of the poetic drama, "Murder in 
the Cathedral," by T. S. Eliot. Parliamentary pro- 
cedure was the topic of discussion at the March meet- 
ing, with Robert's "Rules of Order" as the guest of 

April came, and with it the annual evening devoted 
to "the bard of Avon." May brought the close of an- 
other eventful year for S.T.D., climaxing with the 
annual banquet. 

Barbara Elder served as president during the year, 
assisted by Helen Fanelli and Dorothy Marsh as vice- 
president during the first and second semesters re- 
spectively, Lorraine Roberts as secretary, and Pat 
Clayton as treasurer. Lending inspiration and en- 
couragement to would-be authors was the sponsor of 
the organization, Miss Esther Vinson.

Can you fill the acting and producing requirements 
and meet the standards set by the national constitu- 
tion of Theta Alpha Phi? Ah, ha! Then you may 
conduct the program for January and act as assistant 
director of the commencement play and a few other 
odd jobs requiring only a minimum of twenty-five 
and one-quarter hours per day. The program will 
perform double duty because after a business meet- 
ing TAP joins Jesters for the entertainment. 

Old play practices, the latest stage success in 
Podunk, and Round-robin letters to alumni who were 
unlucky enough to miss Homecoming were subjects 
for the reminiscent chats of the Breakfast for TAP 
and University Theatre Board. 

War has brought into the limelight journalistic 
talent which members have put to use in writing 
News Letters to members of TAP and Jesters now in 
service. This letter is an attempt to tell alumni in 

uniform what is going on at I.S.N.U. in general and 
in speech activities in particular. Tidbits included 
reports on a latest Jester Jem, Silver Cord, last 
month's program, and a P.S. that "Gertie," the bal- 
cony spotlight is still bringing things to light. 

This communique might also include the news 
that since the Wesleyan fraternity's charters and con- 
stitution had been burned, the Normal chapter of 
TAP initiated Wesleyan neophytes into their own 
chapter. I.S.N.U. 's own new members were initiated 
in December and May. 

Theta Alpha Phi closed the Theatre season with the 
commencement play which annually converts Sher- 
wood Forest into an outdoor stage.

They Crusade for Rural Welfare in the 


To acquaint those interested in rural life with the 
problems of that life is one of the purposes of the 
Hieronymus Club. During wartime the significance 
of this purpose increases. Not only is it important to 
understand and solve local problems, but it is also 
necessary to have some insight into the rural life of 
other countries. This theme has been carried out in 
the 1943-44 program under the sponsorship of Mr. 
L. W. Hacker. 

Miss Lora Dexheimer, former supervising teacher 
at Metcalf, discussed the rural conditions of Yucatan 
at the November meeting and displayed many articles 
of handiwork she had bought from the natives of that- 

Fitting the season, Miss Gerda Okerlund told how 
she as a child enjoyed Christmas in Sweden. Her 
description of Swedish holiday foods and customs 
made our rural lads and lassies long for a vacation 
in Miss Okerlund's native country. 

"Rural Life in Germany" was the theme of the talk 
given by Dr. C. W. Gamer of I.S.S.CS. Dr. Gamer's 
studies in the Black Hills of Germany have familiar- 
ized him with that section of Europe. His vivid pre- 
sentation illustrated with map, sketches, and postal 
cards made students aware of Germany's rural prob- 

To make for a more complete understanding of the 
present local problems, the Hieronymus Club met in 
February with the McLean County Rural Youth 
Group at their regular meeting in Bloomington. 

With an eye to the future the officers and members 
of the Hieronymus Club carefully planned this year's 
program and carried on the traditions of this organi- 
zation. Program chairman for this year was Virginia 
Lockhart. Other officers were: president, Bertha 
Harper; vice-president, Ann Waddell; secretary, 
Eleanor Allonby; and treasurer, Margaret Grichnik.

Scientists Old and Young Share Ideas at 


An honorary organization — the third oldest club 
on campus — the only one which has a faculty mem- 
ber as president — students showing proficiency in 
science elected by faculty vote — represented by the 
departments of agriculture, home economics, mathe- 
matics, physical science, biological science, geography, 
and elementary science — in short, the Science Club! 

Mr. Karl Bleyl, assistant professor of biological 
science, showed his own technicolor movie on "The 
Effect of Rattle Snake Venom on Human Tissue," and 
at a later meeting Kenneth Parrill, senior student in 
the department of agriculture, discussed "Corn, Its 
Uses and Abuses." 

Various species of the candy bar found their way 
into one meeting as Mr. H. W. Adams, head of the 
physical science department, passed out a wide 
selection of candy bars and showed that all mentioned 
some derivative of the soybean on their wrappers. 
A delicious way of demonstrating a point on "Soy- 
bean Products." 

Proving that the Home Ec girls know more than 
simply how to use their culinary equipment, Marjorie 
Enns and Marie Johannes demonstrated the physics 
of three types of egg beaters, some can openers, and 
other cutlery in their talk "Kitchen Gadgets." 

On leave from her teaching position in Yucatan, 
Miss Eunice Blackburn, special speaker for the 
geography department, talked on "Anthropology." 

To acquaint members (and faculty) with the new- 
est developments in various fields of science, a pro- 
gram of current events was presented. One member 
of each department gave a contribution from his par- 
ticular field and Frances Marie Cyrier, in charge of 
the program, effected an original denouement by show- 
ing how all the other speakers had used her field of 
mathematics in explaining their various topics. 

This year, Miss Nina E. Gray, assistant professor 
of biological science, served as the faculty president. 
Vice-president was Frances Marie Cyrier and Bertha 
Harper was secretary-treasurer. 


IV s "Early to Rise" for Nature Lovers in 


Was it a poet who sang, "In the spring a young- 
man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love"? It 
must have been a poet — at least it wasn't a member 
of the Nature Study Club. No, the season of the 
vernal equinox turned the thoughts of Normal's 
naturalists to Taraxacum taraxacum. (Dandelions 
to us laymen.) 

The first approach of the budding season found 
members of the club hunting for butterfly nets and a 
copy of "Wildflowers of Illinois and Their Scientific 
Names," and armed with these weapons they set forth 
to explore the great out-of-doors. 

The purpose of the club is to bring to its members 
speakers in the field of science who will arouse interest 
in preserving the natural beauty of the environment, 
and it was carried out by well-informed persons. 

Miss Eleanor Welch, head librarian, spoke on the 
resources of the library for students interested in 
nature, and cited examples of source material dating 
from the twelfth century to the present. Mr. L. O. 

Saylor, landscaper of Illinois institutions, discussed 
"The Place of the Teacher in Illinois Conservation," 
and Miss Nina Gray of the science faculty presented 
information on spiders to the assembled members 
(students, we presume). 

The nature enthusiasts did not neglect their 
feathered friends during the year. They were in 
charge of the feeding of birds at the wild life reserve 
on the W.IBC Broadcasting Station grounds, and 
spent several afternoons in bird study at Forest Park. 

Then too, the topic of discussion for the April meet- 
ing was ornithology. (Take it from Webster that this 
means bird study.) The club was a bit handicapped 
however — it lacked men (a sign of the times) to use 
their superior strength in building bird houses. 

Leading the group of naturalists for the year were 
president, Elsie Carlson; vice-president, Edith 
Dvorak; publicity chairman, Clara Ruff; and faculty 
sponsor, Mr. J. E. Young.

If You "Hunt and Peck," Don't Join the 


Requirements for membership in this corporation 
of figure-toting, nimbled-fingered people are merely 
enrollment in the business education curriculum, pay- 
ment of a membership fee, and a few free Tuesday 
evenings. For nearly thirty years this club has been 
providing the necessary relaxation and guidance to 
those who wish to get closer to the ideals and aims 
of the commerce curriculum. 

In an impressive (depressive) initiation ceremony 
in the dungeon-basement of Cook Hall, pledges were 
welcomed (scared) into full membership at the be- 
ginning of the year. Gloria Piazzi, program chairman, 
arranged the gruesome evening. Gathering dues the 
same evening was Jane Bug, keeper of the money for 
the group. 

Chairmanship of the annual Homecoming house 
decoration contest was again taken over by the club, 
and throughout the year key-clicking members helped 

out the war effort on campus by addressing copies of 
the Vidette, which were sent out weekly to I.S.N.U. 
men in the service. Each class was given a chance to 
show its colors by volunteering for the work. Miss 
Alta Day, sponsor of the club, checked up and kept 
all members on their toes. 

The January meeting found Mr. A. R. Williams as 
"I Know It," firing "$64 questions" at representatives 
from each class. Another club get-together displayed 
the acting ability of Gerry Barnett, Mary Alice Cal- 
lery, Madolin Stodgel, and Mozelle Williams who 
presented a skit entitled "The Army That Doesn't 
Wear a Uniform." 

President Ruth Koltveit and vice-president Alice- 
jane Froland led enthusiastic members of one of the 
largest campus organizations through a challenging 


Teachers of Tiny Tots and Grown-Up Graders Come to 


Putting into practice some of the fine arts with a 
view of developing the potentialities of prospective 
elementary teachers from a "Creative Living" stand- 
point, the Elementary Education Club, under the 
sponsorship of Miss Margaret Cooper and Miss Elsie 
Grime, successfully carried out its theme in a "Let's 
Do" series of programs. 

Efficient leaders of the club were Virginia Price, 
president; Esther Morris, vice-president; Beverly 
Smith, secretary; and Eleanore Allonby, treasurer. 

At the "Let's Be Poetic" meeting, Hallowe'en poems 
written by Metcalf children were read. A committee 
wrote the lyrics for a club song for which the score 
was composed at the following "Let's Sing" meeting 
with Miss Gladys Tipton serving as music advisor. 

Members learned to "do-si-do" and "alamond left," 

under the one-easy lesson direction of Miss Winifred 
Bally at the "Let's Dance" session, and "Let's Act" 
saw Miss Ruth Yates leading the club is choral read- 

Mr. A. W. Dragoo led a woodworking project at the 
"Let's Be Crafty" meeting, and brushes and paints 
plus Miss Alice Ogle's supervision created many mas- 
terpieces in finger painting at the "Let's Paint" gather- 

Original stunts presented by the initiates at the in- 
formal initiation ceremony, a fall tea at which each 
"big sister" was responsible for a new member, and 
a Christmas party for the kindergarten children at 
the "Home" all added color and activity to the year's

"Vive la France et le Francais!" Cry Members oj 

le uuu francais 

Bombs may be whistling through the air over 
France, but the kind that whistle in the monthly 
meetings of Le Cercle Francais explode to the tune 
of "parlez francais" and "vine la France!" The fight- 
ing spirit of the Free French in Europe is echoed at 
I.S.N.U. by the vocal attempts of club members to 
exercise their linguistic talents in preparation for the 
day when France will live again. 

The first meeting of the club was held in the quasi- 
French atmosphere of the home of Mile. Margery 
Ellis, directrice. To sophisticate a rustic accent and 
to oxygenate a lifeless vocabulary, the members aired 
their French in proposing the programs for succeed- 
ing meetings. Selected to lead the parlons francais 
group as la presidente was Mile. Patty Clayton. The 
job of keeping the treasury in the noir was voted to 
M. John Zadrozny. 

Shouting "Bonne Noel et Heweuse Annee" to an 
unsuspecting group, Pere Noel (in private life John 
Zadrozny) stormed into 212 North University the 
night of the Christmas party. A two -white- fur-mit- 
tens-tied-together beard, a red chenille robe with a 
pillow for where "he shook like a bowlful of jelly, ' 

and a red beanie preceded John into the room and 
made him look less like Pere Noel than like a stuffed 
madman with a mania for red. 

Swallowing their "r's" and exploding nasal "o's," 
each member finally made known what he wanted 
for Christmas. Instead of the desired presents, how- 
ever, each received from Pere's own hand a little 
stick for doing some bad deed during the year, while 
the Baby Fold received the packages which the mem- 
bers had brought for the gift exchange. After Bette 
Salisbury read the Christmas story in French, the 
group sang "Sainte Nuit" and "Un Flambeau Jean- 
ette" in true French style. 

Since the French play's the thing in Le Cercle 
Francais, Rosalie was presented by M. Zadrozny at 
the March meeting. With a lively cast, Max Maurey's 
comedy was dramatized with esprit and a ringing 
French accent. 

Two movies, "Journey Through Normandy" and 
"Bits of Brittany," shown by directrice Ellis, made 
members cry "Vive la France" louder than ever — 
until, at least, they can get to France and see the 
scenes for themselves! 


Classical Classmates Closely Cleave to 


What do Latin clubs do? As the Romans did, of 
course. Members of Latin club delve into the dim 
writings of Livy, Martial, Plautus and Terence, and 
other masters of the ancient tongue to leam what 
the Romans did and how they did it. Then, since they 
desire to practice what someone else preached, mem- 
bers use their great stores of unrationed knowledge 
for their programs. 

Without exception programs this year were "de 
rebus Latinis." A "Dr. I. Q." quiz on Roman my- 
thology, with Kenneth Miller as quizmaster, was the 
feature of the October meeting. "Roman Law" and 
"Roman Slaves and Clients" were titles of papers 
read by Gale Brown and Feona Kietzman at the 
third meeting. 

For the next program the Latin students sang 
Christmas carols in Latin. In February Gale Brown 
directed games which the Romans once played and 
other puzzlers involving their language, namely, Latin 
bingo and Latin anagrams. 

The Latin club was organized in the winter quarter 
of 1920-21 under the direction of Miss Mima Maxey, 
who is now on the staff of the University of Chicago. 
Among the nine charter members was Miss M. Regina 
Connell of the Normal faculty. Miss Connell was 
the first president of the club and served as secretary- 
treasurer the next year. 

"Of arms and a hero I sing," wrote Vergil, but 
Latin club members sang of WAVES and a woman, 
their contribution to the war effort being in the person 
of Miss Alice Ebel, who left I.S.N.U. and joined the 
Navy. Miss Ebel was sponsor of the Latin club for 
one meeting before leaving for the service. Miss 
Lucile Klauser was named sponsor to succeed Miss 
Ebel. This year was the first time since 1922 that 
Miss Katherine E. Carver was not sponsor. 

Serving as officers of Latin club this year were Ken- 
neth Miller, president ; Gale Brown, vice-president 
and program chairman; and Junella Baxter, secre-

They Serve on the Home Front in 

HOME EfimilllfS CLUB 

Taking time out from learning how to ''Eat It Up," 
"Wear It Out," and "Make It Do," home economics 
majors and minors came to monthly meetings of the 
Home Economics Club. 

Organized primarily to promote friendship in the 
department, members also cooperated with other 
campus organizations. Home Eccers worked dili- 
gently out at the University Farm on their Home- 
coming float, "Dehydration for Victory," and were 
rewarded by taking second place. 

Knowing that the way to a man's heart is not 
through his left-hand shirt pocket, members baked 
cookies for hospitalized soldiers. They also wrote let- 
ters to service men at one of their meetings. 

Mrs. A. R. Williams, prominent speaker from 
Normal, addressed the group on one occasion. "Pho- 
tography" was the topic discussed by the Reverend 
Loyal Thompson of the Grace Methodist Church of 
Bloomington. In March, new ideas and hints on buy- 
ing spring outfits were introduced. Harry Pines, from 

Pines Ready-to-Wear of Bloomington, spoke on de- 
signing and the buying of clothes. 

This group of needle threaders and rolling-pin 
tossers had a "super" time at their closed Christmas 
party. Bowling provided part of the evening's enter- 
tainment. Since no men were allowed, girls had to 
act as pin setters, as well as "pin-up" girls. Members 
and guests also strung popcorn and danced. 

Because Home Ec majors have to spend nine weeks 
of student teaching out in the field, Julia Cline, presi- 
dent of the club, was absent for the first period of 
activity. Jewell Bailey, vice-president, ably took over 
the reins and presided at the initiation. Thirty-five 
new members answered "present." Bonnie Rich man- 
aged the budget and bank account for the year. 

The executive committee included June Clauson, 
Doris Gunsten, Emma Jane Chandler, Helen Bundy, 
Neoma Reier, and Lois Terpening. Miss Frances Con- 
key, head of the home economics department, guided 
the group.

// you Yearn to Get Back to the Farm, Come to 


Maize Grange may be a club primarily devoted to 
rural interests, but there's nothing corny about it, 
except its name. They plow under any scholastic re- 
quirements, and invite anyone who can wield a sickle 
or don a pair of jeans to join their ranks. Being 
unique, the Grange invites townspeople, farmers, 
faculty, and students to enter into the thick of things. 
Since these lovers-of-the-soil organized thirteen (and 
they aren't superstitious) years ago, they have had a 
cumulative roll call of 546 members. Nice counting! 

Something is always being said about degrees, but 
nothing about the third degree. This was administered 
to initiates when they were forced to parade around 
school on September 30 in ultra-formal dress (patch- 
work overalls to you). Orders for the day were pre- 
scribed by Fred Bowman, Robert Wiegman, and 
Ethel Bale. 

Entering into the spirit of Homecoming, Maize 
Grange sponsored the gasless victory parade. Ken- 
neth Parrill headed the committee and rounded up 

the various floats and individual entries. Putting a 
little money in their own treasury, the Grange walked 
off with the fourth prize with the theme, "Plowing 
Them Under for Victory." 

Members found themselves going around in circles 
at the skating party held in November. Art Hender- 
son arranged the dizzy evening, and it was rumored 
about and around that the party really made a great 
many people sore. (Don't ask why!) 

For the first time in the history of the organiza- 
tion, Secretary Eleanor Horn found the membership 
roll for the second semester nearly manless. Mr. Wil- 
liam DeWees, sponsor of the group, found himself 
surrounded by femmes. Even in the officer ranks 
women ruled. When Kenneth Parrill stepped out of 
the master's shoes, they were ably filled by Bertha 
Harper. Fred Bowman left his overseer's position to 
Elsie Carlson, and Dorothy Elliot took over the po- 
sition of lecturer vacated by Bertha Harper.

They Explode Their P's and Pick Up Their 0\s in 


They're "jest er" crew of "tormentors" who have 
acquired the appropriate backstage smell. But while 
waiting for their cues, they play their own MC to 
the Jester program for 1943-44. 

A preview of many evenings' entertainment ar- 
ranged by program chairman Patty Weldon includes 
interpretative dancing, review of season's plays in 
New York, readings from Robert Burns' poems, and 
cuttings from Jesters' favorite poems. 

Miss Katherine Thielen offered suggestions of inter- 
pretative dancing to I.S.N.U.'s theatrical aspirants as 
they practiced dramatic gestures in order that they 
might add to the interpretation of their character 

Former Jester Margaret Parret humorously re- 
lated a few of her experiences while teaching this year 
in Nyack, N. Y. She reviewed the season's plays she 
had seen in New York City, among them Oklahoma 
and Othello, and described her meeting with actress 
Helen Hayes and with Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. 

A native of Scotland and present pastor of Normal 
Baptist Church, the Reverend John Logan, read 
selections from the works of Robert Burns. So, in- 

spired, members themselves decided to read snatches 
from their own favorite poems. 

At the Christmas party at Sponsor Ruth Yates' 
home, initiates gave individual stunts and all con- 
tributed in writing Round-robin letters to former 
members now in sendee. More initiates were admitted 
at the annual spring picnic. 

Not only have these Bernhardts and Barrymores 
displayed their talents among themselves but also 
for the entire University. Sidney Howard's play 
Silver Cord, was the March production, and in April 
Jesters in Miss Mabel Clare Allen's dramatic pro- 
duction presented a one-act play for College Day. 
Later they gave a repeat performance before As- 

In the annual University Club stunt show Jesters, 
under the direction of Cherrie Healey, demonstrated 
their powers of imagination and humor, and their 
knowledge of dramatic technicalities. 

Not stage business but just plain business of the 
Jesters was assigned to president Imogene Hender- 
son, vice-president Pat Weldon, secretary Alice 
Strickland, first semester, and Lorraine Sandeen, sec- 
ond semester, and treasurer Jane Price. 


They Satisfy the Aesthetic Sense at 


Equipped with paint brushes, construction paper, 
a bit of paste, and a few colored pencils, and wear- 
ing some kind of smock to catch stray drops of paint 
and not solely to add artistic atmosphere, art students 
attend the monthly meetings of the Palette Club. 

The newly christened Palette Club was the Art Club 
of former years. Incidentally, the word "palette" re- 
fers to the convenient wooden palette upon which 
artists place pigments when they a-painting go. Ac- 
cording to sponsor Miss Gladys Bartle, the new name 
affords individuality to the club and allows itself to 
be used as a symbol on club stationery and posters. 

When Homecoming season drew near, much time 
was spent in painting the insignias of the armed forces 
for the Homecoming dance decorations. And hand- 
some and attractive they were! 

An Art Dessert Rendezvous, instituted by president 
Phyllis Wilson and held in the art rooms, was a new 
type of get-together for the alumni. Held in lieu of 
the traditional Homecoming breakfast, this innova- 
tion provided for the alums to gather in old familiar 

Many brains were ransacked in the search for 
original ideas before the feverish activity of present- 
ing the annual Beaux Arts Ball. The theme "Paper 
Doll Promenade" saw paper dolls dancing on the walls 
around cozy winter scenes. Dancing to the music of 
Jack McKown's orchestra, couples heard "Paper 
Doll" featured among other popular tunes. In charge 
of the dance were Dorothy Sherrard and May Robert- 

In February, students had an opportunity to hear 
personal experiences recounted by Miss Margery Ellis, 
assistant professor of foreign languages, in her talk 
"Memories of an Art Class in France." 

The art of the silk screen process was demonstrated 
at the March meeting by Mr. Preston Ensign, a former 
commercial artist and present business manager of 
I.S.N.U., and Miss Mary Schimph's versatile puppets 
entertained at the April meeting. Guest night was 
observed at the last three meetings in order that others 
might enjoy and profit from these presentations.

Music Goes 'Round and 'Round at 


At a minute's notice, the Lowell Mason Club is 
ready to put any number of people before a group to 
sing or play an instrument. Those interested in do-re- 
mi-ing or playing a horn have noted these activities 
and consequently answered the roll call at the meet- 
ings. Since the musicians have rehearsals for band, 
glee club, pep band, or orchestra every night of the 
week, there is no set calendar of meetings. 

Always active, the club reached a new high in par- 
ticipation this year. Remember seeing initiates run- 
ning around with eggs — soft-in-the-shell? They were 
having them initialed, and after proper humiliation 
the neophytes were welcomed into the club and be- 
came active members immediately by working on the 
Homecoming float and reception. The music-makers' 
"Spirit of 76 Compared with '43" came out with top 

Shirley Mader rounded up the members at Christ- 

mas time, and they visited the different hospitals to 
sing carols and spread Yuletide cheer. Afterwards, 
with dry tongues, frozen feet, and raspy voices, they 
assembled at the "Knudson Hut" for hot soup with 
the music faculty. 

With the coming of spring the club leaped into the 
limelight with an assembly program. Charles Pro- 
casky and Mary Ellen Orr were co-chairmen of the 
stunt show skit given in May. Those new pins draped 
on the front of the music majors, minors, and faculty 
members were adopted this year. Marjorie Sullivan 
headed the committee for designing the pin. 

Wielding the conductors' batons this year were 
Mary Carolyn Goodier, president; Mary Ellen Price, 
secretary; Sarah Neil, treasurer; Mary Ellen Orr, 
program chairman; Betty Bremer, membership chair- 
man; Beverly Lincoln, publicity chairman; Miss 
Margaret Westhoff, sponsor. 


Protagonists of Post-War Policies- 


After watching the Social Science Club members 
play baseball and devour great quantities of food at 
the annual picnic, one wonders how the purpose of 
the club could be to promote and maintain interest 
in social science. However, maybe these enjoyable 
pastimes are experiments in the theory of supply and 

Remember seeing persons walking around campus 
early in the year wearing mortarboard hats and carry- 
ing scrolls? They were initiates who bore these bur- 
dens for three days or until the initiation service was 

In November, a panel discussion on "Americaniza- 
tion" was the main feature of the program. No doubt 
former members now in the service were happy to re- 
ceive the Christmas cards sent by the club during 
the holiday season. Ann Prescott acted as chairman 
for the Christmas party. At the January meeting, 
slides on American, Elizabethan, and Russian history 
were shown. A quiz program on Current Events was 
held during February, and Mr. Lathrop of the geog- 
raphy department talked on "The Renner Proposed 

Rearrangement of Post-War Nations" at the March 

The Social Science clubbers snared second prize in 
the Homecoming house decorations contest with the 
theme, "Red Bird Gets the Worm." Three guesses as 
to the identity of the green and white worm ! Chair- 
man Frances Grover was responsible for the Home- 
coming decorations. 

When Prexy Caryl Adair graduated in February, 
Ann -Prescott, vice-president, took over her duties. 
Lois Simpson served as vice-president second semester. 
Roberta Helmick Hoover and Pat Marston acted as 
secretary first and second semester. Marian Rouse 
was treasurer. 

Those elected to complete the personnel of the execu- 
tive board were Norma Whitver, Alberta Ioder, John 
Zadronzy, Delia Talbot, Annabel Kendrick, Helen 
Jones, Norma Whitver, Barbara Wood, and Grace 
Stokes. Billie Herrick was chairman for the arrange-

the club.

'Come and Trip It as You Go" in 


Orchesis is a national organization that sponsors 
modern dance, popularly called "flit." Every Mon- 
day evening, members and pledges of the I.S.N.U. 
chapter meet in McCormick to formulate their ideas 
into dances. 

Miss Katherine Thielen, faculty sponsor, helps the 
participants to become lithe and graceful by making 
use of music as accompaniment for ideas in dance 
composition. Mary Dunklin serves as president, and 
Phyllis Oko as secretary. Members of Senior Orchesis 
are Mary Dunklin, Phyllis Oko, Kay Wheeler, Pat 
Cullen, Marilyn Whited, Alice Frank, Eva Cox, Kitty 
Kiester, Natalie Lyle, Marian Rouse, Lois Delap, and 
Sarah Hood. Those belonging to Junior Orchesis are 
Betty Bergstrom, Rosie Shahadey, Mary Innes, Betty 
Moratz, Phyllis Paterson, and Helene Harvey. 

A girl need not have previous experience in dancing 
to become a member of Orchesis, but she is required 

to attend at least eight meetings and offer an original 
composition at the spring initiation. 

Evidence of the club's constant effort to achieve 
perfection in the dance was witnessed at the Beaux 
Arts Ball and the School Door Canteen. This group 
has kept many program chairmen from tearing their 
hair out. 

Anything from a simple folk dance to a dramatic 
and symbolic number can be executed with equal ease 
by these nimble charmers. Just give them a phono- 
graph and album of records including selections by 
Fats Waller and Beethoven, and the product is some- 
thing out of this world. 

Anyone with a vivid imagination and stamina 
enough to endure the contortions should drop around 
some Monday at 7 p.m. and get into the swing of 


Physical Fitness Holds No Fears for Women in 


The Women's Physical Education Club was organ- 
ized for a purely professional purpose, but just be- 
cause these lassies are primarily interested in the 
problems of Phys. Ed. doesn't mean there isn't fun 
aplenty. Try to name one meeting when the discus- 
sion of the "field" wasn't mixed with a little ping 
pong or shuffle board. 

The Phys. Ed. majors and minors walked away with 
second place in the float division of the Homecoming 
parade with the theme, "To Win — To Serve — To Play 
— For Victory Today and Tomorrow." Incidentally, 
during the Homecoming week-end the students beat 
the alumni in hockey, and, might we add, the alumni 
would not have been considered competition if the 
luncheon at the Co-op following the game had been 
an eating contest. 

Mrs. Harry Wooding of Normal, who was born 
and reared in China, talked on "Chinese Recreation" 
at the November meeting. The annual Christmas 

party, the Jingle Bell Ball, was a ringing success. It 
was an all-female party where everyone could say 
she had a good time without crossing her fingers. "Boy, 
that was some brawl," was one of the understate- 
ments heard after that evening of dancing, games, 
and refreshments. 

Winners of the club's stunt show held in the spring 
have the supreme honor of inscribing their names on 
the big Tin Cup. The Cup, which is a precious pos- 
session of the club, has come down through the ages 
— and looks it. 

Officers for the year were Dorothy Bowden, presi- 
dent; Marilyn Whited, vice-president; Margo No- 
varia, secretary-treasurer. Miss Bernice Frey served 
as faculty sponsor.

New to the Campus Is the 


Quiet music, a calm, thoughtful atmosphere, and a 
reverent spirit pervade the services of the Christian 
Science Organization. Members are ushered into 
M304 on alternate Tuesday afternoons to a service 
which was organized to deepen the spiritual lives of 
its members. The service consists in hymns from the 
Christian Science Hymnal, readings from the Bible 
and correlative passages from the textbook, Mary 
Baker Eddy's Science and Health with Key to the 
Scriptures, followed by testimonies of what Christian 
Science has done for each. Members are appointed in 
turn to act as reader in conducting the services. 

The Christian Science Organization was developed 
in the late fall for the first time at I.S.N.U. The idea 
was promoted by Navy men formerly of Principia 
College who wished to continue their devotional meet- 
ings. Civilians on campus supporting the same ideals 
joined in the metaphysical and financial support of 
the organization. 

Under the sponsorship of Mrs. Gertrude Plotnicky, 
assistant librarian, the group elected president Eleanor 
Metzger, secretary Betty McVicar, and the treasurer 
Florence Phillips. 

Standing: Hinman. Bell, McNeil, Spigel, Van Eck, Cole, Bucquet, Ryan, Carey, Punnett.

Lutheran Students Find Friendly Fellowship at 


Expand the two Greek letters "gamma" and "delta" 
into two Greek words "gnosis" and "diakonia." Trans- 
late into English and you get Knowledge and Service. 
Take some seventy-odd enthusiastic Lutheran stu- 
dents from the I.S.N.U. campus. Add, and you get 
the growing organization, Gamma Delta. 

Born in 1936 by a desire of Lutheran students who 
felt the need of an organization to increase Lutheran 
consciousness on campus, the organization has given 
more than fair promise in growing up and realizing 
its ideals. 

In keeping with its motto of Service, Gamma Delta 
was host this year to the annual Lutheran Students 
of America convention which included Lutheran stu- 
dents from Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, and 
Iowa. The convention, held November 19-21, had as 
its purpose the advancing of Lutheran work between 
schools of the Hub regional district, of which I.S.N.U. 
is a member. Henriette Voigt was elected vice-presi- 
dent of the Hub region for 1944. Amber Grauer, gen- 

eral chairman of the convention, reported twenty- 
three student representatives from Normal in at- 

The fortnightly meetings have served both the edu- 
cational and social needs of the members. One of the 
highlights of the educational meetings was the spon- 
soring of Perry Saito, Japanese American, who ad- 
dressed both students and faculty members on the 
physical condition of the military camps in California 
and the mental problems of the evacuees. 

Social gatherings were under the direction of Mar- 
jorie Voigt. The organization welcomed alums back 
to the Homecoming breakfast and in December en- 
joyed a Christmas party in the Student Lounge. 

Helping to keep Gamma Delta a living organiza- 
tion during a war year was sponsor Mrs. Ray M. 
Stombaugh. The Reverend Walter Hohenstein, pastor 
of the Trinity Lutheran Church, and the Reverend 
Granger Westberg, of the First English Lutheran 
Church served as spiritual advisers.

All Catholics on Campus Are Welcomed into 


Twenty years ago Newman club first lit the lamp 
of existence. This organization both welds the Catho- 
lic students on campus into a common union and 
further fosters the spiritual, intellectual, and social 
interests of the group. 

The social activities of the club this year began 
with a reception at Holy Trinity high school planned 
by Father S. N. Moore, the Knights of Columbus, and 
the Daughters of Isabella. Other events included an 
initiation of new members, homecoming breakfast, 
and a Christmas party. 

Regular monthly meetings took the form of panel 
and round table discussions on problems of Catholic 
doctrine. Students planned and conducted question 
boxes. The Reverend S. N. Moore, the Reverend M. 
B. Schuetz, and the Reverend J. E. Lohan addressed 
the club on various occasions. Members took part in 
corporate communion and group activities. Masses 
were offered for I.S.N.U. alumni in the service. Helen 
Jones, librarian, helped to build up a library, while 

Betty Haug kept in touch with alumni in service. 

Highlighting the year's activities was the Newman 
club convention of the Central States Province held 
April 14, 15, and 16 on our campus. Delegates from 
Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, and Illinois col- 
leges and universities were present at the meeting 
which had as its theme "Catholic Action Through 
Newman Clubs — in Peace and Wartime." Father F. 
E. Shea, one of the founders of the local chapter of 
Newman club, was guest speaker at the various dis- 
cussions and the luncheon. 

Rosemary Browne, who was elected president when 
Helen Fanelli Hunsaker resigned, was chairman of 
the convention. Helping to give suggestions and aid 
were executive committee members Frances Cyrier, 
Margaret Breen, Bill Keefe, Josephine Murphy, Mau- 
reen Moore, Barbara Kraft, A. S. Vincent Brasi, and 
Marjorie Sullivan. Miss Regina Connell again acted 
as sponsor of the group, and Father S. N. Moore was 



Westm inster Fellowsh ip 

Every Sunday evening during the year a congenial 
group of young people met at the Presbyterian Church 
for recreation, supper, and devotions. This group was 
the Westminster Fellowship, composed of I.S.N.U. 
students of the Presbyterian faith. 

A glance at the calendar of this group reveals a 
year full of events. The programs for the weekly meet- 
ings featured topics of special interest to young people, 
such as "Boy and Girl Relationships," and "How to 
be Decent and Modern." 

Outstanding social events during the year were 

the Hallowe'en, Christmas, Valentine, and St. Pat- 
rick's Day parties, treasure hunts, hayrack rides, and 
weiner roasts. The Spring Retreat to Lake Blooming- 
ton, a day devoted to meditation and discussion, 
rounded out the program. 

Jean Handley led the group during the year with 
Ellen Kalips in charge of finances. Council members 
Phyllis Patterson, Betty Bryan, Maxine Sponsler, and 
Roberta Graden handled such matters as publicity, 
recreation, and program planning. 

Wesley Foundation 

The purpose of the Wesley Foundation is to bring 
the Methodists of I.S.N.U. together for fun, fellow- 
ship, and worship. Every Sunday evening during the 
year this group united in games, supper, and worship, 
while on Friday evenings they met for bowling, skat- 
ing parties, or other forms of recreation. Saturday 
afternoons were spent by members in publishing their 
newspaper, the Wesley News, of which A. S. Bill 
Hodge was editor. 

Special events of the year included the Freshman 
reception, the annual Homecoming Breakfast, the 
Hallowe'en, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Leap Year, 

Valentine, and St. Patrick's Day parties, the produc- 
tion and staging of a Christmas play entitled "The 
Alien Star," the Wednesday evening sacrifice suppers 
during Lent, the Spring installation banquet, and the 
annual Spring Retreat at Miller Park. 

Responsible for much of the year's success was the 
new assistant director, Miss Betty Rae Hileman, who 
not only directed all activities, but who served as per- 
sonal advisor to the Methodist students. Officers for 
the year included Mona Eisenhower, president; Mary 
Ellen Orr, vice-president ; and Sabra Jean Starr, secre-

Our War Effort Is Directed by 


In February, 1942, two months after the United 
States entered World War II, a War Service Council 
was organized with seven boards composed of both 
faculty and students, each with a faculty and a stu- 
dent chairman. Dr. Chris A. DeYoung was made 
coordinator of the group and President R. W. Fair- 
child, ex-officio member. 

In the summer of 1943 this council became known 
as the War Service Area, with five boards, and with 
Mrs. Laura H. Pricer as coordinator. 

The purpose of the five boards is to help in what- 
ever way possible in the war effort. 


To collect and preserve all information, cor- 
respondence, and records of alumni, faculty members, 
and employees of the University now in military serv- 
ice, and to file such material in the alumni office was 
the work of the War Records Board. Ellen Sorensen 
and Walter Bartz were chairmen. 


Arranging special patriotic assemblies, providing 


flags when needed, and working with such groups as 
the American Legion was the duty of the Govern- 
mental Relations and Americanism Board, with Mr. 
J. W. Green as faculty chairman and Kitty Kiester as 
student chairman. 


The function of the War Literature and Library 
Board was to put into Milner Library all important 
material concerning the present war, to preserve 
speeches of prominent leaders, and to secure and pie- 
serve materials from alumni in service. Serving on 
this board was faculty chairman Eleanor Welch and 
student chairman Dorothy Marsh. 

In charge of drives for collecting funds for war 
purposes and the purchase of stamps and bonds by 

Right, War Funds Board: Novaria, Coles, Miller, Mr. Lan- 
caster, Mr. Rine, Miss Flag 

Lower Left, War Records Board: Harris, Miss Day, Bartz, 
Caviezel, Miss Sorensen. 

Lower Right, Student War Activities Board: Moore, Miss 
Webb, Miss Thielen. Miss Buell, Mr. Stombaugh, Miss Ross, 
Miss Crompton, Gunsten. Miss Winegarner, Cope, Glenn, 

both students and faculty were Mr. R. E. Rine, 
faculty chairman, and Marilyn Coles, student chair- 
man, of the War Funds Board. 


The Student War Activities Board directed all war 

activities for students on campus, such as the making 
of surgical dressings, sewing and knitting, mailing 
Videttes to men in service, and saw that fats, paper, 
and metal were salvaged. Chairmen were faculty 
member Miss Mary Webb and student Patricia 
Moore. The I.S.N.U. Red Cross Canteen corps was a 
part of this work. 


Til the Boys Come Home— 


Despite the serious exodus of the male population 
from the membership of Alpha Tau Alpha, Gamma 
Phi, Industrial Arts Club, and Kappa Phi Kappa, these 
organizations have kept the light of activity glowing 
in the absence of members who were in the armed 
forces, at home and abroad. 

There were only two student members in Alpha Tau 
Alpha, honorary agricultural fraternity, when the 
1943-1944 year opened, namely: Fred Bowman and

Kenneth Parrill. By general agreement 
with Mr. John W. Green, sponsor, and each 
of the six members of the division of agri- 
cultural education, who are automatically 
members, an initiation was held January 
18 to welcome Arthur Henderson and Ora 
G. Byerley, students, and Dr. Karl Bleyl, 
biology instructor, into active membership. 
Now the four student members are in the 
armed forces. 

Gamma Phi, that, organization of bounc- 
ing acrobats, originally an honorary fra- 
ternity for men, invited women into its 
rank and file this year. Sherma Dabney, 
Vivian Pratto, Elaine Parsons, and Esther 
Larson kept the club active under the di- 
rection of Mr. C. E. Horton, sponsor. 

Although no officers were elected in the 
Industrial Arts Club, the following mem- 
bers were active: May Robertson, Virgil 
Bachman, Oraleen Schroeder, Walter 
Bartz, Glenn Roberts, the Reverend Mar- 
ion Schuetz, Veryl Weaver, Dale David- 
son, Tom Kienle, and Bill Hodge. Mr. Ray 
Stombaugh was the sponsor. 

Kappa Phi Kappa, professional educa- 
tion fraternity, at a spring meeting last 
year, elected the following faculty mem- 
bers to serve as officers for the duration: 
Mr. C. F. Malmberg, president; Mr. T. L. 
Lancaster, vice-president ; Mr. C. E. Decker, secre- 
tary-treasurer, and Mr. E. L. Cole, sponsor. 

Student members in the organization were Kenneth 
Parrill, Howard Curry, and John Zadrozny. A Kappa 
Phi Kappa news letter relating what's what and who's 
who on campus was sent to each member in military 
service. A complete list of the membership dating 
from the establishment of the chapter at I.S.N.U. in 
1931 was prepared. 


It's "Back to Normar' for Alums at 


Throngs of young people winding through the 
streets in a crack-the-whip line, screaming, yelling, 
pulling one another along, holding flaming torches 
high — no, it wasn't the mob storming the Bastille in 
Tale of Two Cities but the students of I.S.N.U. rally- 
ing to the colors on the way to their goal — the light- 
ing of the bonfire at the twenty-third annual Home- 
coming celebration ! 

Weeks before the bonfire, the University truck went 
up and down the streets of Normal, and people were 
asked to contribute any old spare chunks of wood 
that might possibly be used to feed a juicy bonfire. 
With utmost secrecy, these precious bits were stored 
in a remote spot to discourage any temptation that 
anyone might entertain of relieving us of it. Then 
came a fateful day — the University was out of fuel, 
and all trucks were needed to haul coal, not our wood. 

As the zero hour darkened, Mr. Preston Ensign, busi- 
ness manager, fenageled one lone truck — and lo and 
behold! the bonfire came out of the realm of the 
hypothetical into the realm of the actual! 

As the size of the pile increased, it was necessary 
to strengthen the defense line. Charles Procasky, 
chairman of Homecoming, sent a plea to all girls 
who had passed the physical fitness test to help guard 
the wood. With the help of the Navy and about 
twenty volunteer Amazons, a solid impenetrable ring 
of power guarded the wood pile. Thanks to them, 
we lit our own fire — the second time in two years! 

Pleas echoed from the auditorium stage each time 
Procasky appeared in order that a Homecoming 
might be realized. Those who had signed up were 
called upon to staple crepe paper, move furniture, 
hang insignias, tack this, paint that, hold this, move 

It was a Gasless Parade! Attendants Paisley, Hopewell, Chase. Kinsey (camera shy?) and Queen Morisy. 


that, get this, call Ensign, get Gooding, see Fogler — jobs 
without end. In desperation at the final moment, twenty 
Navy lads were mustered to complete the work. 

"Papa is All, Anymore." This wasn't a new twist to 
the slang expression of kicking the bucket but, in quaint 
language of the Pennsylvania Dutch, means "Papa is 
gone — he belongs to the past." The old melodramatic 
situation of the stern father who, gun in hand, goes forth 
to "wreak wengence on the warmant who disgraced my 
daughter" was a given a new and amusing twist in Papa 
Is All, Patterson Green's comedy which was presented 
as the Homecoming play. 

You sympathized with Mamma (Xeoma Reier, Imo- 
gene Henderson) and the two young people, Jake (A.S. 
Howard Schersten) and Emma (Norma Struck and 
Dorothy Schafer) ; you cringed before Papa's (A.S. 
Robert Lindquist) tongue and whip; you enjoyed the 
gossip of Mrs. Yoder (Blanche Baker, Edith Morris). 

Furniture from here, there, and everywhere trans- 
formed the women's gym into a regular canteen — not the 
famous Stage Door Canteen but I.SN.U.'s own Home- 
coming Canteen. Chairmen were Mary Carolyn Goodier 
and Miss Bertha Royce. 

Leaving Fell Gate and going through downtown 
Normal and back again went the annual parade. Spec- 
tators lined the sidewalks and cheered as Lowell Mason 
Club gave its impression of the "Spirit of 76" and gave 
to the club the honor of winning first prize. Fell Hall, 
though out of the femmes' hands and into the Navy's, 
topped Smith Hall again this year witli their "Five 
Graves to Victory." And we know how true that prophecy 
proved to be ! 403 South University led individual 
houses with an interesting take-off on Life magazine. 

Homecoming crowd sees the Navy on Parade — Behind the horses, 
Maize Grange "float" — Before the torch-light parade; two hours 
later no one could talk above a whisper — Navy men come through 
with a prize winner.

Proving a necessary part of the war effort as well as 
adding attraction and picturesqueness to the campus was 
the Captain's inspection of the Navy V-12 Unit, Nary a 
gob did bat an eyelash or move a "muscul!" By its snappy 
drilling, the Unit interpreted the popular song phrase "the 
gravy's in the Navy." A dignified tribute to those I.S.N.U. 
alumni in service was read by Ensign William Turner, who 
returned to campus from Columbia University to give the 

And then came the battle royal! Red and white on one 
side — green and white on t'other. The "red" proved a 
danger signal as well as a stop sign for the opposing side. 
Witness: Normal 6, Wesleyan 0! Hancock's thirteenth 
Homecoming victory! Of course we all knew that the Navy 
was bound to win. The annual "After the Game" cider 
and doughnut reception gave way to punch and doughnuts 
in Cook Hall, where jubilant victors expended some of 
their pent-up energy on the dance floor. 

Always one of the highlights of any Homecoming is the 
presiding of a queen and her court over the festivities. 
Rose Marie Morisy was chosen from a group of thirteen 
candidates to reign as Homecoming Queen for 1944. Mem- 
bers of her court were Norma Paisley, Beverly Chase, 
Winona Hopewell, and Grace Kinsey. 

Ran Wilde's orchestra, with "Music Styled by Wilde," 
attracted students, faculty, alumni, and friends to the 
dance. The twenty-foot American eagle that adorned the 
bandstand, the red and White and blue chandeliers, and the 
arresting insignias of the armed forces on the walls com- 
posed the dance decorations. 

After the smoke of the occasion cleared, students, faculty, 
and alumni sang "Hail I.S.N.U." with greater gusto than 
ever in memory of a successful Homecoming. 

Ensign Turner, alumni, pays tribute to alums in service — Lowell 
Mason's "Spirit of 76" — We had a marching band, once! — 
"Brownie's," with "Pages from Life."

Naval Cadet Johnson with eyes glued to the coveted sheepskin 
— I.S.N.U.'s service flag occupies a prominent place on stage at 

The End — and the Beginning- 


The long procession moved slowly down the path 
to the measured tread of the music. A spirit of 
solemnity prevailed among the black-robed figures, 
as two by two they advanced down the walk to the 
ampitheater. The cardinal robes of the ushers march- 
ing at intervals amid the line of black gave color and 
contrast to the scene. Past JVIilner they came — to take 
their appointed places in Sherwood Forest, as the 
leading characters of the scene to follow. All eyes were 
turned toward them — it was their day. It was June 
■ — and Commencement. 

Commencement — a beginning! To the black-robed 
figure it seemed as if all of his life had been a prepara- 
tion for this day. Today he was given a new begin- 
ning! He arose mechanically with the assemblage 
and the strains of the Star Spangled Banner filled the 
June afternoon. Some of his classmates were in uni- 
form; many of the girls had diamonds on fingers and 
hearts in the service. The new beginning Commence- 

ment gave him seemed already mapped out — within 
a month he would enter the Air Corps. He hadn't 
wanted to finish school — it had seemed to him so 
futile to sit placidly in the peaceful town of Normal 
while the world was being blown to bits. He was 
glad he had finished his course. 

Dean Schroeder was speaking now. The Com- 
mencement address — "War, Peace and Education." 
Quite in keeping with the thinking of this war year: 
"Life involves a constant interplay of conflict- 
ing forces. The life of man is an unceasing strug- 
gle to secure the satisfaction of his wants, the 
achievement of his purposes, the realization of his 
aspirations and ideals. Living for human beings is 
more than making a living. It is more than satisfy- 
ing our physical wants, such as our needs for food, 
clothing, and shelter. It includes the enjoyment of 
life in its fullness, the gratification of our love of 
truth, of beauty, of goodness. This tremendous life- 


urge in its various aspects is the inevitable source 
of conflict and strife, for human beings do not 
live in isolation, as hermits. Men must learn to 
live together. . . . 

". . . Permanent peace implies the abolition of 
war, and the abolition of war implies the over- 
coming or the controlling of the causes of war. . . . 
"... And if, when it is all over, it should be 
found that again mistakes shall have been made 
in permitting conditions to remain or to arise 
that will throw the whole world into still another 
holocaust of war a generation hence, man will 
still continue to hope for a future better than 
the past and better than the present. . . ." 
Suddenly he knew he would never forget this — 
the warm June afternoon; Dean Schroeder stand- 
ing there, symbolizing the undaunted spirit of the 
school itself; Old Main drowsing in the sun, empty 
for awhile of life. 

The awarding of degrees! Prexy handling him 
his B.Ed. He looked at his classmates. Soon these 
girls would take their places in the classroom and 
fulfill the I.S.N.U. tradition of fine teaching. And 
as soon as this business of war was over he, too, 
and others like him would take up those tasks for 
which they had prepared and for which they had 
fought. Today opened a door to that future. 

Commencement did not entirely shut the door 
on the past. His student days at Normal were over, 
but they would not be forgotten. The hustle of 
Freshman Week — hours spent in Milner with the 
reference reading of Hist, of Civ. — endless an- 
nouncements in assembly — football games with 
Wesleyan — midnight feasts and bull sessions — the 
campus under a blanket of snow — weekend movies 
in Capen — chimes in the Old Tower pealing out 
Christmas carols — Phil, of Ed. — -Student Council 
parties — championship basketball teams — cokes at 
the Co-Op — those classes of Mr. Palmer's in which 
no one fell asleep — the drowsy atmosphere of a 
fifth hour class on a balmy Spring day — Four 
Corners — pigeons circling about Old Main — these 
things he would take with him, and more. 

The Recessional, and the march through the 
faculty lines to Old Main. His family waiting for 
him. The eighty-fourth Commencement of Illinois 
State Normal University was over. But it was only 
the beginning. . . . 

"Whew, it's hot in these robes!" Dr. Cotton delivers the 
Baccalaureate address — Mr. Schroeder bidding adieu to 
the '43 graduates — "At last, after four long years," the road 
back — The tower of Old Main looks down on another class 
graduating into a war-torn world.

Music, drama, literature, current affairs — such were 
selections afforded I.S.N.U. students by the Entertain- 
ment Board during 1943-1944. 

Thrilling American soprano Anne Brown opened 
this year's program. Miss Brown, who chose to devote 
herself to concert despite Broadway's dazzling offers, 
more than pleased her audience with dramatic inter- 
pretations of scores from composers such as Handel, 

Schubert, Schumann, Faure, and Gershwin. 

An attractive lady of all ages — one who can, by a 
gesture, inflection of her voice, and flip of her shawl 
transport herself from the sublime to the ridiculous 
— is monologuist Ruth Draper. At one moment she 
is a war-stricken French woman bidding her husband 
goodbye, next she appears as a young flighty wisp of 
youth, or a common New England housewife. 

Setting for University Club's Christmas Service. 


Alfred Noyes, distinguished English poet, pointed 
out how the corrupt thinking of the last fifty years 
has affected the literature and art of this period. 
Confusion in style and technique, chaos in thought, 
pseudo-modernism — these are samplings of his 
opinion of so-called modern poetry. 

Foreign affairs expert Henry C. Wolfe spoke 
March 12 on "The Next Act in Europe." Mr. 
Wolfe witnessed the chaos in Republican Germany 
during the inflation period and frequently visited 
the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler. Since then he has 
observed movements in Czechoslovakia, Poland, 
Finland, and South America. 

The appealing and exquisite singing of the Apollo 
Boys Choir left the I.S.N.U. audience with a last- 
ing memory of the transitory beauty of boy voices. 
Coleman Cooper, founder and director of the choir, 
is a young man who received his musical training 
through study with eminent choirmasters in the 
United States and Europe. 

As the last entertainment in the 1943-1944 series 
Sigmund Spaeth, in his lecture "America's History 
in Song," transported his audience from Colonial 
days through the Gay Nineties to modern jazz and 
swing. His humorous dissections of melody illus- 
trated at the piano and his musical index to the 
costumes, manners, morals, and slang of our pic- 
turesque past left Normal amazed and amused.

Wally Muelder's Orchestra featured on the Navy-12 show. 

Ah— Ah— Ah Don't Cut Those 

Writer Maureen Daly 

Breaking the routine of the week's classes, and- serving as a 
meeting place for old acquaintances and new friends were the 
Wednesday assembly programs. At these get-togethers students 
were made to feel a part of the whole school, and get in touch with 
the outside world through speakers and guests. This year, because 
of the smaller student body, only one program was given. Navy 
blue suits, mingled with those of civilians, made a checkerboard 
appearance in the balcony and main floor. 

Although much of the entertainment came from visitors to the 
campus, a great deal of assembly time was given over to student 
groups. Highlighting these were the Navy V-12 program, the 
Senior Take-Off, Women's League Skit, University Band concert, 
Navy radio class, and Red Cross Canteen girls' playlet on "Food 
for Freedom." 

Students particularly enjoyed the Navy V-12 show, which 
awaited them after Christmas vacation. The musical program, 
with a cast of forty-five, featured Wally Muelder's Navy orchestra, 
with solist Leonard McKain (and to hear the swooning, some must 
have thought he was Frank Sinatra II). A.S. Bob Bayles, A.S. Bill 
Blomquist, A.S. Bob Bergstrom, and A.S. Gordon Rhodes — the 
Augustana Quartet — entertained with some barbershop harmony. 

Several faculty members gave their time to speak to the assembly 
group. Leading off on Armistice Day, Mr. Richard Browne ad- 


dressed the student body on the topic, "This Time, 
Peace." He stressed that international law, inter- 
national power to enforce that law, free economic op- 
portunity, and international understanding are the 
four cornerstones for building world peace. 

Miss Margaret Peters, assistant professor of busi- 
ness education, served as stand-in on short notice for 
a scheduled speaker who failed to appear one Wednes- 
day. She had only thirty minutes in which to put to- 
gether her travel talk on the difficulties she en- 
countered in returning to America in 1939, but every- 
one who heard her declared that it was one of the best 
and cleverest programs of the year. 

Celebrating the birthday of Abraham Lincoln, Miss 
Lucy Lucile Tasher, associate professor of social 
science, read cuttings from Western Star, Stephen 
Vincent Benet's narrative poem. Unfinished because 
of Benet's death last year, the poem describes the 
first settlements in Jamestown and Plymouth. Miss 
Tasher selected humorous bits, as well as dramatic 
sketches in the historical work. 

Some of the guest speakers included Miss Maureen 
Daly, feature writer for the Chicago Tribune; Scott 
Bedford, who lectured on the "Beauties of Modern 
Cities"; Dr. Mithrapuram K. Alexander, Indian 
speaker; Mr. Paul J. Misner, superintendent of schools 
at Glencoe, Illinois; and Mrs. Harold Medbery, who 
presented a travelogue on Alaska. 

Charming young Maureen Daly, author of the 
popular Seventeenth Summer, captivated the as- 
sembly-goers with a vivid account of her early life 
in Fond du lac, Wisconsin, her accidental writing of 
her first story, and the later writing of her book. She 
dramatized her reading with bits of personal expe- 

riences, and all students thought she was definitely 
"on the beam." Even a faculty member was seen in 
the high school library afterwards trying to check 
out a copy of her idealistic teenage masterpiece. 

Using colored slides, Scott Bedford, Chicago soci- 
ologist, showed how attractive cities could look with 
flowers on sign posts and clocks, and with colors in 
sidewalks. "Beauties are not like wine; they may be 
enjoyed over and over again without any ill effects," 
Mr. Bedford said. 

Speaking on the subject, "The Clash of World 
Forces in India," Dr. Mithrapuram K. Alexander, a 
native of Travancore, South India, warned his audi- 
ence of the world's duty toward his down-trodden 
homeland. Students left Capen with new thoughts, and 
determined to find ways to help the peoples of India. 

Dr. John L. Cheek, Mr. David J. Heffernan, and 
Rabbi Israel H. Weisfeld, representing the National 
Conference of Christians and Jews, discussed the 
theme of "Education for Freedom." They interpreted 
the issues involved in the war, the need for under- 
standing and cooperation among the diverse groups 
comprising the nations, and the common responsibili- 
ties which we all will have in the post-war world. 

Perennial favorites with the students were the 
musical programs presented. The Vera Pearl Kemp 
Ensemble had an added attraction this year — six girl 
vocalists singing in unison. 

"Informal" describes the concert given by Mr. Earle 
Spicer, internationally known baritone, on March 22. 
He sang traditional English and American ballads, 
supplemented with explanations about his selections. 

Variety is what we asked for, and received, in the 
'43- '44 Assemblies.

Abandon Study, 

All Ye Who Enter Here! 

II. s. c 

No studying! That was the password for enter- 
ing into the frivolities and fun of U.S.C. 

Because need was felt for a spot where girls and 
fellows might gather informally, the old Student 
Lounge was converted into the University Social 
Center. But since everything gets initials these 
days, it became known as the U.S.C. 

Under the joint sponsorship of the Student Coun- 
cil and Faculty Women's Club, the U.S.C. got off 
to a good start. Miss Eleanor W. Welch, head of 
the library staff, and Marian Rouse, a student 
council representative, were co-chairman of the 
committee. Students volunteered suggestions, and 
campus organizations were asked to donate funds 
to make the project a success. 

The trio of rooms of the old quarters began to 
take on a new appearance almost immediately. 
The southeast room was stripped of its furnishings, 
the floor highly polished and waxed, and a victrola 
furnished. From seven to ten each evening, stu- 
dents could jump and jive on school premises, 
without supplying the nickels! 

A dinette and a serving bar (what — at Normal!) 
were built in the west room. Coffee, doughnuts, 
and popcorn balls were served on various occasions. 
The main room of the suite remained the same, 
except for a little rearranging of furniture. 

On Valentine's day the U.S.C, bedecked with 
bright red hearts, became the scene of an after- 
game celebration. Women's League served the 
Washington Day Tea in the new surroundings. It 
was not only on these special occasions, however, 
that U.S.C. was the center of attraction. Every 
day students took advantage of its facilities for a 
candy bar or coke, chattering and listening to the 
radio, or just mere lounging. 

Well, how about a stroll down to U.S.C. for a

Tense moment in Normal- Wesleyan tilt. 

Twice in '43 Redbirds Downed Titans in 


Coach Howard Hancock's 1943 gridders were drawn mainly from enrollees of the Navy V-12 
unit with only a handful of civilian students in the lineup. The Redbirds plunged through the 
season to turn in a good account of themselves. 

The Cardinal dads this year presented a big problem for Coach Hancock, for they came to 
I.S.N.U. from various colleges where they had learned almost every method of playing known 
to football coaches. Coach "Handy" developed his material into a well-organized, fast-moving 
club and satisfied anxious fans with a good season. 

What about the other men behind the men under the shoulder pads — the assistant coaches 
and managers? This year Coach Hancock found able assistants in Coach Joe Cogdal and Chief 
Specialist Fred Grewing until Grewing received his commission as Ensign and moved to a new 
station. Bob Olson, Bill Sandburg, and Bob Bayles took over positions as managers of the 
Cardinal grid squad. 








Standing: Manager Olson, M.Elliott, Rinck, Peck, Keller, Schick, Blythe, Lemm, R.Johnston, Engel, Hoghmd, Speck, E.Johnson, Muelder, Livingston. 
Second Row: Manager Sandberg, Olivieri, Hahn. Smith, Karlstrom, B. Johnson. McDonald, Perry, Bauer, Lemon, De Trade, Stone, Manager Bayles. 
Front Row: Talkin, Kienle, Ozmon, Gerber, Hrehovcsik, Freeman, Sebben, Hillman, Punnett, Escorcia, B.Elliott. 

This year was a boom year for defeating Normal's 
archenemy, Wesleyan; two victories over the Bloom- 
ington team in a single season! At the Homecoming 
game the Hancockmen ran up a 6-0 victory over the 
Titans, and on November 20 they repeated the per- 
formance with a 12-6 win on Wesleyan 's field after 
Bob Talkin's breath-taking 88-yard run for a touch- 
down in the last seven seconds of play. For these 
historical grid triumphs I.S.N.U. students enjoyed a 
one-day vacation from classes. 

At the All-Sports banquet in December, Bob Elliott 
was named 1943 winner of the Carter Harris cup pre- 
sented annually to the football player voted most 
valuable by his teammates. The guest speaker, Father 
J. P. Farrel of the Illinois State Reformatory at Pon- 
tiac, expressed the hope that "you boys, who have al- 
ways stood for fair play, will always play according 
to the rules." 

The twenty-six members of the squad receiving- 
letters were A.S. Leslie Livingston, A.S. Ernie John- 
son, A.S. Dave Stone, A.S. Frank Olivieri, A.S. John 
Hahn, A.S. George Hrehovcsik, A.S. Howard Hillman, 
A.S. Eugene Magnuson, A.S. Richard Johnston, A.S. 
Gene Speck, A.S. Aldo Sebben, A.S. Robert Freeman, 
A.S. Bob Elliott, A.S. Glenn Blythe, A.S. Bob Talkin, 
A.S. Don Hoghmd, A.S. Art Schick, A.S. Bob Lemm, 
A.S. Wally Muelder, A.S. Art Keller, A.S. Bill Rinck, 
A.S. Lcroy Karlstrom, A.S. Bob Gerber, A.S. Bob 
Peck, Ray Bauer and Bruce McDonald. 


In the opener the Redbirds showed that they were 
out to win and sent the Hoosiers back home with a 








Bauer looks tough while Coach Hancock and Chief Grewing ponder a weighty problem. 


The Hancockmen were far outdone because of De- 
Pauw's professional players and others who had a 
great deal of experience to their credit. 


During the second half, fans twiddled their thumbs, 
hoping for someone to make a touchdown. 



The Cardinal squad encountered aerial work that 
they could not compete with. 


Homecoming fans witnessed the first victory over 
Wesleyan since '34 with high glee. Joyous Redbirds 
carried Coach Hancock and Chief Specialist Fred 
Grewing from the field on their shoulders. 


The Purple and Gold put up stiff opposition, but 
they were unable to score any touchdowns. 


The I.S.N.U. squad encountered two opponents — 
Wilson Junior College and mud. 


The Indians threatened Normal with near touch- 
downs several times. The Red and White, however, 
prevented the Cap Girardeau eleven from scoring. 


Bob Talkin's epochal 88-yard clash left fans open- 
mouthed. The victory run came in the last few sec- 
onds of the game when it looked as if the final gun 
would sound on a 6-6 deadlock. 








It Was a Gloomy Season in 


Coach Howard Hancock's matmen, the muscle men 
of the University, met stiff opposition in their short 
season of only three matches. 

The Redbird grapplers this year were fellows who 
had never wrestled before, except for A.S. Bob Engel, 
who was elected honorary captain of the hard-working 
squad. Twice against University of Illinois wrestlers 
Bob won his match in the 175-pound class. 

In the first match on January 8 the Hancockmen 
ran into a group of experienced matmen from the 
U. of I. Engel pinned his opponent, while all the other 
Normal men were easy prey for the experienced 
Urbana men at a cost of 31-5. 

The Cardinals then journeyed to Wheaton College 
to try their strength against the Wheaton grapplers. 
This time they again met with defeat by 36-0. The 
Hancockmen tried all the holds they knew, but the 
Wheaton men always seemed to know how to wiggle 
out and get the upper hand. 

The third match showed some improvement in the 
I.S.N.U. grapplers. They came out on the bottom 
of a 35-5 decision in favor of the University of Illinois 
wrestlers who had defeated them a few weeks earlier. 
The Normal squad tacked up a record of one win, 
two forfeits, and five defeats. 

Coach Hancock awarded a varsity letter to A.S. 
Bob Engel. Because of his previous wrestling expe- 
rience, Engel had a slight edge over the other fellows. 

Other members of the Normal wrestling team were 
as follows: in the 121-pound division — A.S. Don Bur- 
ton; in the 128-pound class — A.S. Irving Friberg; 
in the 135-pound class — A.S. Harry Ebe; two in the 
145-pouncl group — A.S. Larry DeTrude and Ray 
Bauer; A.S. George Hrehovcsik and A.S. Joe Eavey at 
155-pound level; A.S. Willard Galloway and A.S. 
Lyman Smith at 165 pounds; A.S. Bob Engel alone 
in the 175-pound classification; and heavyweight A.S. 
Al Schilling at 230 pounds. 

Standing: Coach Hancock. Smith, Schilling, Galloway, Elliott, Fetter. 
Seated: Burton, Ebe, Eavey, Engel, Hrehovcsik, DeTrude, Friberg. 


I. I. A. C. Champs Again in 


After a three-months' basketball season packed 
to the limit with hardwood contests, Coach Joe 
Cogdal's Navy V-12 basketball squad came through 
to win the sixth consecutive I.I.A.C. first place title 
for "dear old Normal" — and Joe. 

Coach Cogdal had the same problem of forming 
a team from used material that the coaches in 
other sports faced. With daily, really tough, work- 
outs in McCormick gymnasium the men developed 
speed on the floor and skill in shooting. The season 
began with some morale-destroying defeats for the 
Redbirds, but they showed that they had what it 
takes by coming back for more and by dishing it 
out as well as taking it. 

The one returning letterman on the squad was 
A.S. Jake Schoof. A.S. Frank Olivieri, sophomore, 
won first place in conference scoring with a total 
of 167 points. His total for the entire season was 
347 points. In addition Frank set a new record of 
28 points in the last game of Normal's season 
against the Leathernecks of Macomb. 

Although Olivieri was high score champ, other 
men helped him win this recognition with their fine 
play. They are A.S. Bob Talkin, A.S. Don Dear- 
dorff, A.S. Warren Collier, A.S. Harry Glickauf, 
A.S. Arnold Verbic, A.S. Gene Speck, and all the 
rest of the fellows who worked hard to keep Normal 
on the basketball map. 

The 1943-44 I.S.N.U. basketball squad consisted 
of A.S. Bill Abbott, A.S. Don Deardorff, A.S. George 
Harding, A.S. Wally Muelder, A.S. Frank Olivieri, 
A.S. Tom Raeside, A.S. Paul Rickey, A.S. Dave 
Stone, A.S. John Stout, and A.S. Jim Whitlock, 
forwards; A.S. Hoyt Ambrosius, A.S. Warren Col- 
lier, A.S. Leonard MacKain, A.S. Bill Suhring, A.S. 
Bob Talkin, A.S. Jack Trebbe, and A.S. Arnold 
Verbic, guards; and A.S. Harry Glickauf, A.S. Jake 
Schoof, and A.S. Gene Speck at center positions. 
Chief Specialist Leonard Greathouse, assistant 
coach; Kenneth Parrill, manager; A.S. Cecil Jordan, 
assistant manager, helped Coach Cogdal train 
this title-winning team and keep the men in 

Those receiving letters were Olivieri, who was 
squad captain for the year, Collier, Talkin, Schoof, 
Speck, Harding, Glickauf, Verbic, Stone, Dear- 
dorff, Trebbe, MacKain, and managers Parrill and 

Navy battles Navy in the Great Lakes game. 







In the opener against Valparaiso the Reclbirds went 
down under a 49-31 barrage of baskets. This was a 
fast -moving tussle in which a number of football tac- 
tics seemed to be used. 

The Caterpillar Diesels journeyed from Peoria to 
give the Cogdalmen their second trimming by a 69-60 
margin. The Cats showed the results of greater prac- 
tice in their smooth ball-handling teclmic and also 
in passing and shooting. The Cardinal dads had been 
handicapped because of a lack of available practice 

The Normal hoopmen gave the Little Giants of 
Wabash a run for their money in a 47-26 tilt on 
December 11. The Red and Whites were just begin- 
ning to show their true hardwood ability. The 
Cardinals kept up this winning streak for the first 
game against George Williams College of Chicago. 
The final score was 58-50 in I.S.N.U.'s favor. 

On December 30 the Redbirds ended the old year 
right by making a 50-44 victory over the Decatur 

For their first game of 1944 Coach Cogdal's men 
motored to Indiana to meet the Valparaiso squad on 
their own floor. The change of scenery did not help 




the fellows, and they returned to Normal witli a 59- 
53 defeat. In their second game with the Cats of 
Peoria, the Red and Whites fared better than they 
had the first time. Through a last-minute free throw 
by A.S. Harry Glickauf, the Normal men netted a 
70-69 win over the Diesels. 

I.S.N.U. fans witnessed the second worst defeat 
of Normal's season when the Gobs from Great Lakes 
came to McCormick gym. The Gobs had on their 
squad the height and speed that the Normal quintet 
lacked. The final score was 83-53 for Great Lakes. 

The Redbirds won their first 1944 I.I.A.C. confer- 
ence game by a margin of 45-43 over the Egyptians 
of Southern Illinois State Teachers College on the 
Birdies' home floor. Normal kept well ahead of their 
opponents during the first half, but some well-placed 
field goals on the part of the Southern five brought 
the Egyptians closer to I.S.N.U.'s score. 

When the Little Giants of Wabash College came to 
Normal, they received their second defeat from the 
Cogdalmen in a 55-39 contest. 

In their struggle against the Decatur Caterpillars, 
the Cardinals fell under a 70-53 drive by the Cats. 
The Huskies from DeKalb journeyed to McCormick

gymnasium on January 22 to roll up a score of 51-47 
over the Cardinals. A tall center on the Northern 
squad jeopardized Normal's chances of winning from 
the beginning. 

This year for the first time in eight years the Birdies 
played a game on the hardwood against the Titans of 
Wesley an. The contest was played on the floor at 
Wesley an's Memorial Gymnasium, but unfamiliar 
surroundings did not stop the prowess of the Red and 
White. They came through with a score of 51-34 
rolled up against the Green and Whites. 

The Leathernecks of Western fell under the drive 
of the Redbirds on Western's floor on January 25 to 
the count of 65-51. In spite of its defeat Macomb pro- 
duced the high scorer of the evening in the person of 
Dick Todd with a total of 28 points. 

The worst defeat for the Cogdalmen came from 
the Gobs of Great Lakes in an 85-47 tussle. Fast- 
scoring by the Gobs overwhelmed the Red and White. 

After leading almost all the way, the Charleston 
quintet lost a close game of 53-50 to I.S.N.U. A.S. 
Warren Collier sank the deciding basket in the last 
minutes of play. 

George Williams College received its second defeat 

from Normal on February 5 in its own gym. The 
game ended in a 62-52 score in the Redbirds' favor. 

When the Prairie Shipbuilders of Seneca, failed to 
appear for a game, Coach Cogdal pitted his Reds 
against his Whites for a 58-41 battle in favor of the 

The Cardinal five swamped the Southern Teachers 
five of Carbondale in a 60-38 victory on Carbondale's 

For the second time Wesleyan's Green and Whites 
bowed to the Coclgalmen in a 62-32 struggle. The 
Titans started the scoring but could not finish it. 

Coach Cogdal gave most of his team a good work- 
out in the game with Charleston on February 16, 
when Normal turned in a 71-39 account of itself. 

The Birdies made sure of the I.I.A.C. champion- 
ship by defeating DeKalb Teachers by 58-47 in a neck 
to neck race with the Huskies. 

In the game against Western's Leathernecks Jack 
Escorcia, a senior in physical education, made his 
1943-44 hardwood debut to help roll up a total of 
48-41 over the Macomb squad as the only civilian 
man to appear with Coach Cogdal 's basketball men 
this year. 

McCormick bleachers are full of cheering students when Redbirds have a game scheduled.

The Ail-American Game 


The nucleus of Coach Howard Hancock's base- 
ball squad this spring were lettermen Don Pinder, 
and A.S. Spencer Gilmore, who were active on the 
team last year. 

As this book goes to press, no schedule of games 
in baseball has been drawn up. I.S.N.U., however, 
will play as many as possible of the squads that it 
opposes in "Normal" times. 

Trying for the pitcher position were A.S. Wally 
Muelder, A.S. Don Petersen, A.S. Leslie Mclntyre, 
and A.S. Herman Friedman; for catcher were A.S. 
Jack Koerner, A.S. George Hrehovcsik, A.S. Her- 
bert Graff, and A.S. Jack Weir. 

Aspiring first basemen were A. A. Milton Clarke, 
A.S. Robert Larson, and A.S. Don Deardorff ; sec- 
ond basemen Don Pinder and A.S. Bob Johnson; 
third base A.S. Lloyd Sides, A.S. Byron Graber, 
and Fred Sell. 

Men out for short stop were A.S. Eddie Carson, 
A.S. Orrin Lashbrook, Tom Kienle, and A.S. Dean 
Stonier; for right field A.S. Anthony Toliuszis, 
A.S. Howard Hillman, and A.S. Richard Wolfe; 
for center field A.S. Richard Brown, A.S. Spencer 
Gilmore, and A.S. Don Detjen; for left field Ray

Few Men, but Great Fun in 


As was true of all sports activities at I.S.N.U. this 
year, most of the participants in the men's intra- 
mural program were men of the Navy V-12 unit. 
Those who availed themselves of the facilities of 
McCormick Gymnasium from 7 to 9 p.m. on Mon- 
day and Thursday evenings had a roaring good time. 

The administration of the men's intramural sports 
program was in the hands of faculty member Mr. 
Lavern E. Laubaugh of the agriculture department. 
Jack Escorcia acted as student chairman of the pro- 

Opportunities for tournaments in twelve sports were 
offered, and although interest in some of the usual 
sports lagged, basketball, tennis, and ping pong- 
proved to be the favorite of intramural fans. 

In intramural tennis Escorcia won the 1943 sum- 
mer tournament. In September a fall tennis tourna- 

ment was launched with both civilian and V-12 men 
out to win. The semi-finals were never completed be- 
cause the Navy semester ended at the time when these 
were scheduled. Then with the new semester under 
way and the fellows ready to finish their games, un- 
favorable weather halted all activities. 

The civilian basketball squad, appropriately named 
the "Civies," proved superior to all its V-12 competi- 
tors. The "Civies" held the leading position through- 
out the tournament and emerged with a final score 
of nine games won and none lost. The V-12 squads 
in the running were Fitz, Oozlefinches, Busters, Tor- 
pedoes, Farmers, Pony Special, Scuppers, Has Beens, 
and D.S.'s. 

Escorcia won the pin pong tournament which ended 
in early spring. 


Recreation to Raise You from Wrack and Ruin — 


Ready, Service! Whang! — We're off to a dashing 
season of fall sports. There is nothing like a speedy 
set of tennis to relax one after a hard day of psychol- 
ogy, grammar, and student teaching. Even after the 
one, two, three, down-up-down-up-down, (enough is 
enough!) of calisthenics, tennis and hockey are child's 
play. Although only a few girls went out for fall 
tennis, Margo Novaria served the would-be Helen 
Wills Moodys through many sets. (Let's make it love 
sets, just to be romantic!) 

The hockey team under the leadership of Saralea 
Storts, bullied against Wesleyan for home to home 
games. The results were one tie, 0-0 (whose favor?) 
and one defeat, 2-0. 

Strike! Obvious results of instruction and prac- 
tice of bowling league teams under the leadership 
of Sherma Dabney. Leagues, meeting every Tuesday 
evening, really knocked 'em for a row of duckpins. 

While the snow flurried outside, Silvia Swanson and 

her 27 guards, forwards, centers, and water girls 
played a fast game of basketball on the hardwood at 
McCormick. They really have that old technique 
of "shooting the ball." 

Mildred Scheffel with 40 girls took a work-out 
Monday and Wednesday afternoons with their old 
favorite, volleyball, or batted the birdie in badminton. 

Ah ! Come spring, Alice Frank and Esther Larson 
and their girls lightly turned to thoughts of tennis, 
baseball and archery. (No kidding!) They tested 
the tennis racket for another set (here we go again. 
Ah, spring!), or they hit for a homer straight through 
right field. Woman on second, woman on third — what 
a set-up! Modern Robin Hoods stopped traffic on 
School and Beaufort, streets with their bows — and 

As if all this weren't enough, tickets were obtain- 
able throughout the year for swimming, ten-pin bowl- 
ing, duck-pin bowling, and golf. What Stamina! 

This suspense is killing! Will it go over, 
or won't it?

Newly-formed Graduate Council . 

Another Term — and a Backward Glance as 


Illinois State Normal University under the cloud 
of chaos and conflict for the fourth time ... in its 
eighty-sixth year of preparing teachers who have 
accepted the challenge of perpetuating our cultural 
heritage in the hamlets, villages, towns, and cities 
of Illinois . . . another annus for history-making. 

The pen began to scrawl the activities and events 
of another year on September 14, the beginning of 
Freshman week, those few days packed with con- 
ferences, bewilderment, loneliness, tests, and social 
gaiety. President Raymond W. Fairchild watched 
wisely over the administration of the institution. 
Successor to the dean's chair formerly held by Dean 
H. H. Schroeder was Dean Chris A. DeYoung. 
Registration started 776 students on the work of an- 

other term toward that coveted degree. Sixty-seven 
civilian men bolstered the masculine quota. 

Fell and Smith Halls no longer echoed with the 
voices of prospective pedagogues. The two dormi- 
tories had been converted into "ships" by the arrival 
of the Navy V-12 upon our campus July 1. Lieu- 
tenant Meldrim F. Burrill was in command of the 
two units of approximately three hundred appren- 
tice seamen. Bell-bottomed trousers, canine mascots, 
and nautical lingo made their way into the academic 
atmosphere of college life. Saturday afternoons saw 
students, faculty members, and townspeople gather- 
ing on the south end of the campus to view "captain's 

Homecoming began on October 22. Highlights of 


the gala week end were the canteen where old friend- 
ships were rekindled, Ensign William Turner speaking 
at the naval review, the gasless parade, and victory 
over the supposedly invincible rival Wesleyan by a 
score of 6-0. 

At 12:30 noon on November 9, fire flared out in 
the attic of Fell Hall. Students stood by, helpless 
and horrified, heedless of class bells. The navy men 
in an orderly manner removed the furnishings into 
McCormick Gymnasium and speedily set up their 
barracks. Later in the afternoon the blaze was ex- 
tinguished, leaving the roof badly damaged. During 
the same month the N.Y.A. barracks at the University 
Farm, which at one time had housed 125 men, were 
torn down. 

The entire student and faculty body mourned the 
passing of Miss Bemice A. Tucker, assistant profes- 
sor of home economics, on November 11. A critic at 
the University High School, Miss Tucker had been 
a member of the faculty since 1932. 

In the latter part of this month, "Tabby" Talkin, 
apprentice seaman, won a place for himself in the 
Hall of Redbird Heroes by making a spectacular 
eighty-eight yard line dash on the gridiron in the last 
seven seconds of play and clinching the second suc- 
cessive win over the neighboring Titans. The usual 
two-day Thanksgiving vacation was shortened into 
one holiday to meet the demands of wartime trans- 

Recognition and honor came to I.S.N.U. with the 
announcement that it was to be the first school in 

the state of Illinois to have a division of special edu- 
cation. Dr. Rose Parker, associate professor of edu- 
cation, is to be the director of this new division which 
will offer training for teachers for exceptional chil- 
dren. Stress is to be placed upon the instructing of the 
partially sighted, the socially maladjusted, the hard 
of hearing, and the speech defective. 

Further distinction bestowed on our Alma Mater 
was the approval of Illinois State Normal University 
along with the other state teachers colleges for 
graduate work. Beginning in the summer session of 
1944 graduate courses will be offered in eight fields: 
education, psychology, biological science, English, 
geography, foreign languages (German, Latin, and 
Spanish), speech education, and social science (his- 
tory, political science, economics, and sociology). A 
faculty council was created to supervise the admin- 
istration of this special work. 

For the third time, Illinois State Normal Uni- 
versity was awarded a two hundred dollar scholar- 
ship by the Illinois Congress of Parents and Teachers, 
the first such grant received by our school since 1941. 

This unforgettable year included an incessant ham- 
mering, a persistent odor of paint, the creak of wheel- 
barrows, makeshift offices, and the movement of crews 
of workmen everywhere. I.S.N.U. underwent the wel- 
comed ordeal of a series of building repairs, the paint- 
ing of the exterior of some of the buildings, the con- 
struction of a new sidewalk from Fell Hall to Milner 
Library, the renovation of the business office and the 
Dean of Women's office, the re-roofing of the Indus- 

■ y »s.w:>'.t' ; *.,. J Tr;'» ,_ 


trial Arts building, and the laying of asphalt tile 
floors in the ground floor of Old Main. The White 
Room, site of the organization of the first college 
Y.W.C.A. in 1872, received its final decorative touches 
and was re-opened for student meditation and meeting. 

The eleventh annual round-up of school admin- 
istrators of central Illinois was held on December 4. 
The theme was "The Education of Exceptional Chil- 
dren." Principal speakers included Lawrence J. Linck, 
executive director of Illinois commissions for handi- 
capped children, and Dr. Charles Perry, director of 
special education at Ohio State University. 

A few days before Christmas holidays, Professor 
George M. Palmer, a member of the English depart- 
ment for twenty years, resigned because of poor 

health. His loss was deeply felt by those students in 
whose hearts he had won a place of admiration and 

The new year excitement started off with the first 
Navy assembly. It featured a cast of forty-five per- 
sons, including Wally Muelder's fourteen-piece band 
and soloist Leonard MacKain. 

In the limelight were the speech activities featured 
on our own campus. The first school-wide discussion 
contest was sponsored by the Eta chapter of Pi Kappa 
Delta. I.S.N.U. in January played host to students 
from approximately twenty schools, who debated upon 
the subject of whether the United States should par- 
ticipate in a world police force. 

This year marked the absence of manv familiar 

figures from the campus. Those on leave were Mrs. 
Rose B. Buehler and Miss Huberta Clemans from the 
Metcalf Training School; Miss Alice L. Ebel from 
the University High School; Mr. John F. Foy and 
Miss Louise Pedigo from the affiliated schools ; Misses 
B. Elizabeth Dean, Edna M. Gueffroy, Opal C. Hart- 
line, Ruth Henline, Emma R. Knudson, and Messrs. 
Harold F. Koepke, Harlan W. Peithman, and Richard 
G. Browne from the faculty; and Mrs. Gertrude M. 
Hall of the publicity office and Mr. William V. White 
of the University Press. Resignations came from Miss 
Marie Finger and Miss Winifred Bally of Metcalf; 
Mr. Kenyon Scott Fletcher and Mr. Francis W. Hib- 
ler of I.S.N.U.; and Mr. Chris E. Harpster of I.S.S.C.S. 

Additional highlights of the year were the personal 
appearance of the young author Maureen Daly, the 
clinching of the sixth consecutive IIAC title by the 
Cogdalmen, Alfred Noyes' lecture on "Literature and 
Life," the opening of the University Student Center, 
the Victory of the Phils over the Wrights, and the an- 
nouncement of Mrs. Lorraine J. Roberts as I.S.N.U. 's 
nominee for the University of Illinois scholarship. 

. . . and so close the pages of another volume of 
the history of Illinois State Normal University . . . 
a university in wartime . . . marching unflinchingly 
onward with its challenge of "gladly wolde he lerne 
and gladly teche." 



Miss Bernice Tucker 

. . . died on November 9, 1943, after an illness of six 
weeks . . . 

Miss Tucker had been assistant professor of the teaching 
of home economics at Illinois State Normal University 
since 1932. At the time of her death she was acting as 
supervisor of home economics majors. The teaching 
profession and the University lost a competent member 
upon Miss Tucker's death. 

hi. James Finley 

. . . crashed to his death on December 14, 1943 . . . 
While attending Illinois State Normal University, Jim 
held many responsible positions in campus organiza- 
tions . . . was admired by every student who knew him. 
Many of us remember him as Editor of the notable 
1942 Index. The entire University felt the shock of his 
tragic death. 



Professor George M. Palmer 

. . . died May 7, 1944 . . . 

For two decades, Mr. Palmer challenged students of Illinois State Normal 

University to face squarely issues of the present and the future. He was 

One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, 

Never doubted clouds would break, 
Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph . . . 

and from his intellectual integrity, zest for living, and great-hearted courage 
came the inspiration that lives on in the memories of those who knew him. 



the inestimable aid in the production of the 1944 Index given by 

Harold F. Beckett, Kingsport Press, Incorporated, Kingsport, Tennessee, in the manufacture 
of the new-style covers; 

Robert F. Grubb, of Grubb Engraving Company, Champaign, Illinois, in the engraving of 
the book; 

John J. Watchinski and the Camera Craft Studio, Normal, Illinois, in the photography; 

Edward J. Bryan, of Pantagraph Printing and Stationery Company, Bloomington, Illinois, 
in the printing; 

Ramon Hanson, I. S. N. U., for informal shots; — to these in particular, and to a score of others 
whom it is impossible to name, the 1944 Index staff is deeply grateful.
